So this is how it has been with us for months now. We first tried BMT late one night when we went in to check it out and listen to some live music. We didn’t have our camera – we were just there to check it out. The food… killer!
We had the Ahi Tuna Wonton Crisps and the Cajun Trashcan Tacos. NOT bar food!!! The tuna crisps were great – seriously! But the trashcan tacos are something we have gone back for again and again. THAT is how much we crave them! In fact, we posted a video on our Drooldish page on Facebook about those tacos! And that was NOT the first time we had them.
The next time we went in was after we had been out playing pool. It went a little something like, “Hey, wanna swing in to Black Monk and get some of those tacos???” Yes, please. And did we have the camera with us? Again, no.
And that trend continued. We end up there at night, eating all that awesomeness, but not getting it on the blog because we don’t plan to go… we just GO.
Now let’s get to the food… because that’s what we’re clearly all about. The tacos… a simple, yet perfect combination of flavors and textures. Sausage, shrimp, and red beans in a flour tortilla, topped with an over medium egg… Wow! Bust that yolk and you have the perfect sauce for that Cajun combo of flavors. It adds just the right amount of creamy and balances out the Cajun spices. Simple and delicious and exactly what your body wants when you’re out at night. The other items we have had have also been on point - delicious food that happens to be available at an unassuming tavern.
Even our most recent visit was unplanned. We were returning from a concert and happened to have the camera with us. There it was again… “Hey, wanna swing in to Black Monk and have some tacos? Maybe shoot a game of pool?”
You can’t say no. The answer is always a resounding “YES!”
Get in there and see exactly why we’re obsessed with this place! Maybe it’ll become “your bar,” or maybe, like us, it’ll be the place you go to wrap up your night.
Give it a go and let us know what you think!
