GREAT TASTES Clockwise from far left: Hot & Raw Ceviche, Blackberry Ginger Margarita, and El Jefe Taco A Different Kind of MEXICAN AT SOL MEXICAN COCINA # PHOTOS COURTESY OF SOL MEXICAN COCINA In the heart of Scottsdale, SOL Mexican Cocina transports diners to Baja. That unmistakable, easygoing vibe is everywhere, from the flavorful food and handcrafted margaritas, to the warm ambience. SOL opened its first location in Newport Beach, California, overlooking Balboa Marina. Executive Chef Deborah Schneider - a James Beard Award nominee, author of five Mexican cookbooks, and Baja expert - oversees both locations. Schneider's expertise in authentic Mexican cooking is apparent in SOL's menu. It's a fresh, simple approach to food: Premium meats are grilled or slow simmered, fish is fresh and sustainably caught, and all items are made from scratch daily, using high-quality ingredients. What to order? Start with SOL's signature guacamole made with goat cheese, mango, and a dash of tequila. Then choose from coastal Mexican fare such as the Fish Taco Gobernador, prepared with the chef's seasonal fish selection, or the Ribeye Taco. Unique mariscos include spicy Mexican yellowtail ceviche with tropical fruit and vegetable chips. Better still, many of SOL's menu items are good for you. Schneider calls this "stealth health," referencing her use of colorful, fresh ingredients. She uses the same approach with SOL's handcrafted cocktails. Think fresh-squeezed fruit juices, agave nectar, and 60 artisanal tequilas. For a spicy kick, try the Cucumber-Jalapeno Margarita. Beer lovers will go for the Bulldog, a beer margarita served in an oversize glass with an overturned Coronita. You'll never look at margaritas the same! So grab your cocktail, head to the patio, and cozy up to the indoor/outdoor bar. There's live music on Taco Tuesdays, a daily happy hour, Tequila Thursdays, a weekend brunch, plus the best people-watching around. The question is, are you in Scottsdale or Baja? Does it matter? ¡Salud! SOL Mexican Cocina Scottsdale Quarter 15323 North Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ 480.245.6708 DECEMBER 2014 57
