Last week I attended a special media event for Stacked. They were celebrating their five year anniversary and we celebrated at their newest location in Huntington Beach, California and invited some local bloggers to try their newest offerings.
The atmosphere was fun and casual. The restaurant was quite busy and the first thing I did was check their monthly specials which are thankfully always displayed in their restaurant.
I have to say that the Fiesta Taco Salad and the Mac 'n Chorizo caught my eye. But first, it was time for a cocktail. First things first right? I ordered the blackberry mojito and was delighted by how refreshing and tasty it was! You may have seen it on my Instagram.
Next, I ordered a little appetizer and decided to try their Home Made Potato Chips. These beautifully crispy and flavorful chips where great on their own, but you can also pair them with their specialty sauces. My choice for sauce that evening was the Garlic Aioli and it tasted as good as it sounds.
Next, I tried their Fiesta Taco Salad made with Romaine lettuce, chicken, queso fresco and tortilla chips. Topped with poblano pepper dressing made this a nice new find. Currently, it is only available as a special this month, so if this looks good to you, try it soon.
Then we shared the Spicy Chicken Flatbread. This buffalo chicken with Sriracha and mozzarella cheese tossed with green peppers and onions on a fresh flatbread was delightful!
Then one of my absolute favorite dishes from Stacked made an appearance. The Chorizo Mac n' Cheese.
If you love chorizo, you will love this dish! Stacked makes some wonderful mac n' cheese and this is my new favorite.
As we finished our meal, the team members at Stacked had a surprise for us. A lovely hen for dessert, a lovely Butter Cake! This was no ordinary butter cake, this one was stacked with fresh, colorful, sweet fruit and is the newest menu item for Stacked.
Beautiful isn't it?
