CONTEMPORARY CUISINE
Agave Bandido is a Mexican colorful and modern restaurant and tequila bar that offers contemporary cuisine attracting those for a lively ambiance. Agave Bandido is minutes away in The Shops at Pembroke Gardens in Pembroke Pines, from Weston. This family-friendly restaurant has a fun and lively atmosphere for everyone to enjoy and have a good time. Inside, you can’t miss the beautifully designed and colorful wall mural for the perfect Instagram-worthy pictures. Agave Bandido also has outside seating with a dramatic outside bar. Their open kitchen provides authentic creations to satisfy every palate.

   

VIVA MEXICO!
Upon entering the restaurant, my guest and I gazed at the vibrant wall mural, and we were delighted. The friendly hostess took us to our table, and we were ready to begin the night with a cocktail toast. We ordered the Berry Basil Margarita, which is hand-crafted with Blanco Tequila, fresh berries, basil, agave, and lime. It tastes like a classic margarita, but with a sweeter taste from the berries. If the Berry Basil Margarita isn’t your type of drink, don’t fret! They have a variety of other cocktails and drinks, such as bottle and draft beer, wine, sangria, and, of course, a variation of tequila. For our main course, although it was a tough decision to make, we ordered the Chicken Enchiladas that come with three corn tortillas, ranchero sauce, pico de gallo, lettuce, crema cheese, avocado, chicken, and served with Mexican rice and beans. The Chicken Enchiladas have an authentic taste and are very flavorful.


SWEET SPOT
If you have a sweet tooth like me, then you’re in for a treat with the selection of desserts that Agave Bandido has to offer! We ended up sharing the Trés Leches, which translates to three milks. The Trés Leches cake, is a sponge cake soaked in three types of milk: heavy cream, condensed milk, and evaporated milk. This is a filling dessert, so feel free to share. The other options are Churros, Churros Ice Cream Sandwich, or a Bandido Margarita Popsicle. We will come back soon to try other items on their menu!
