A donkey with butterfly’s wings, a rooster with an eagle’s head shouting the word, Alebrijes! Louder and louder, Alebrijes, Alebrijes, Alebrijes!
Whoa! Bad dream.
That’s what happened to Pedro Linares when he had this exact dream when he was 30 years old and very sick.
You get the rest of that story later. (click here for it)
Last night I dreamt it was my first day at school and I forgot my schedule and kept going into the wrong class. Awkward, very awkward but no donkeys.
Nowadays Alebrijes is one of the highest rated and loved Mexican Bistro in Lodi, Ca. Ruben Larrazolo Executive Chef and Owner has created an authentic ambiance along with some of the tastiest food and drinks you never had.
(Grilled octopus and shrimp ceviche with roasted rajas and pasilla de Oaxaca vinaigrette)
Sit down to some Pomegranate Guacamole, Ensalada Mixta con adereso de chipotle y queso Añejo, Camarones Momia de Guanajuato or Carnitas estilo Michoacan and maybe Costillas de cordero con salsa de tamarindo y pico de Gallo de Manzana but more than likely some Puntas Alebrijes con queso asadero y cebollas caramelizadas con chipotle.
Yeah that was a mouthful. Sounded really good though. Going to taste even better!
Go get your mouthful! Did we mention Ruben kicked it for a bit with Chef Rick Bayless? Lucky!
Alebrijes also offers a big selection of infused Tequilas.
