Mexican cuisine varies greatly by region, however, there is no denying that all of the traditional dishes are packed full of flavor and colors. Although Mexican food does have a reputation for being very hot, of the many chilies and spices used for cooking, not all are spicy as most are used for their flavors and not just their heat. The carefully selected options that make up the extensive menu at Agave offer a range of Mexican flavors suitable for even the pickiest of eaters.
Be brave and start off your meal with a traditional Chile Relleno, a jalapeño pepper stuffed with a ground beef and tomato stew, or play it safe with a delicious salad made up of mixed lettuce and delicious string cheese from the Oaxaca region of Mexico.
A must-have during your visit to Agave is the traditional Cochinita Pibil. This popular dish from the Yucatan region of Mexico is named for its unique cooking method; Pibil comes from the Mayan word p’ib, meaning ‘buried’, in which foods are wrapped, generally in banana leaves, and cooked in a pit oven giving them a distinct, and unmissable, flavor.
