Anejo is one of my favourite restaurants situated in Calgary’s prime location of 4th Street.
I absolutely love the ambiance of this little jem. It’s cozy, quaint, upbeat and fun! The staff is friendly and the food is what I like to call “Calgary’s Mexican”. A contemporary spin on mexican food.
Anejo uses the freshest, and get this – locally grown ingredients. From the variety of Ceviches to the unique tasty margaritas. Chilli Coconut is my favourite!! A must try! The guacamole is a popular appi, which is prepared at your table in lava-rock mortars – a nice extra!. If you are a cheese lover like myself, the Queso Fundido is amazing. They blend it with pico de gallo, chorizo, sautéed mushrooms and served with tortillas. Lets not stop there, the main dishes. My fav is the Chili Relleno, poblano pepper, goat cheese, corn meal crust, tomato sauce, served with lime cilantro rice. The tacos come Uno, Tres or Seis, and you get to choose from their delicious beef short rib, adobo pork to the crispy cod! Don’t forget to add-on your sides like beans and the tasty Cumin Jalapeno Quinoa. No matter how stuffed you are, you cannot go without trying the Quatro Leches Cake! Don’t leave the whip cream, it’s tequila infused! Yummy!

I highly recommend this restaurant. It’s perfect for a dinner out with your significant other, or just a place to have appi’s and drinks before a hockey game! I know you will not be disappointed.
