Foodie Friday - Ahi Tuna at The Patio on Guerra Street

Ahi Tuna

I barely remembered to take a quick picture of the tuna I ordered at this fabulous restaurant...
The Patio on Guerra Street
McAllen, Texas
If I had to make a request for my last dinner... this would be it.
Yes, it's very rare, but that is what allows it to melt in your mouth.
Coated with what I think are white and black mustard seeds there is a rich teriyaki sauce drizzled on top. This tuna is as they say, "To die for!"
I had creamed fresh spinach with this and a green salad with cilantro dressing.
Creme brulee was for dessert.
Yes.. it was a celebration. Our friends' were celebrating their anniversary and we
were celebrating ours.

This lovely lemon martini served chilled in a sugar rimmed glass started our evening.
Just tart enough!

The Patio on Guerra Street has recently been redone, a building which has been in the Guerra family for many, many years.

Original art done by a family member lines the rooms. Deep south Texas and Mexico are the themes of the paintings.

It was a wonderful evening!

A few pictures of the old
and respected Guerra family.
