    Your Guide to Ordering Tequila

    Last updated 5 months ago

    The Mexican blue agave plant from which tequila is made is not only responsible for its flavor, but its classification as well. The first type is “mixto” which means the tequila is 51 percent blue agave and 49 percent other sugars, like cane. The other type of tequila is 100 percent blue agave, which the label on the bottle will note. Tequila that is made purely with blue agave can be broken down into three basic groups based on how long it is allowed to age.


    Blanco tequila is also known as silver, white or platinum. Since it is typically bottled shortly or immediately after it is distilled, it preserves the blue agave flavor better than any other type of tequila; as such, it retains its sweetness. As its name may suggest, it is a clear, transparent type color. Blanco tequila tends to be a bit harsher than more aged reposado and añejo tequilas.


    While blanco tequila harnesses the blue agave’s natural intensity, reposado tequila is aged to create a darker and smoother flavor. This type of tequila is usually aged for at least two to three months, but less than one year. This allows the tequila to take on some of the taste of the wood barrels in which it is aged, which also gives it a darker or golden hue. Reposado tequila is considered “aged” compared to the quickly bottled blanco tequila.


    Also known as “extra aged” tequila, añejo tequila takes the resting process one step further. This type of tequila is always aged for at least one year, which allows it to absorb the flavors of the barrel more fully. The extra flavors contribute to a more complex taste and a darker color. Tequila that has been aged for over three years is considered “ultra aged” or “extra” añejo.

    How Is Tequila Made?

    Last updated 6 months ago

    Tequila is made from the blue agave plant in Mexico. Piñas, which are the fruits from the blue agave plant, are cut up into small pieces and steamed or baked and distilled.

    Tequila is at least 51 percent blue agave, as you will see in this video. There are three types of tequila that are 100 percent agave: blanco, reposado, and añejo. Blanco tequila is smooth and clear because it does not rest between the distillation and bottling phases. Reposado ages for at least three months, so it absorbs some of the flavor of the oak barrel. This makes it a little darker and not as harsh. Finally, añejo gets its darker color and smooth taste from oak aging for at least a year.

    For more information about how tequila is made, call Pancho Villa Taquiera at (650) 288-0548 or visit our website. We are among the finest Mexican restaurants in the San Francisco area. Stop by for some burritos today to see for yourself.

Whether you love all kinds of meat, have a liking towards certain fish, or abstain from fish and meat altogether, our menu will still afford you a variety of options. Here is a look at Pancho Villa Taquiera’s range of seafood selections.


    Prawns are essentially the same as shrimp, and if you like shrimp, you will love our seafood menu. At Pancho Villa Taquiera, we are ready to serve you prawns in any style. If you tend to enjoy spicy foods, try our chipotle prawns or our hot and spicy prawns “al chile de arbol,” with Mexican chili peppers. If spicy foods are not for you, we also offer garlic and fajita prawns for a tamer but more versatile dish. We also serve the prawns cocktail, which is an excellent starter of prawns in a cocktail glass.

    Seafood Tacos

    If you prefer to enjoy your prawn in taco or burrito form, Pancho Villa’s Taquiera can make that happen for you. Like the rest of our tacos, our delicious prawn taco is served with lettuce and salsa; and like our other burritos, the prawn burrito comes with rice, beans, and salsa. Our other seafood taco options include fish guachinango and grilled salmon. To round out our seafood burrito options, we offer steak and prawns, grilled salmon, and red snapper.

    Other Seafood Items

    In addition to our vast selection of prawns and seafood tacos and burritos, Pancho Villa Taquiera offers a selection of grilled fish. This selection includes the huachinango snapper, or red snapper, as well as salmon. Both of these items are served “a la plancha,” or grilled.

    To try our delicious seafood for yourself, stop by Pancho Villa Taquiera. As a leading Mexican restaurant in the San Francisco area, we also offer delicious tacos, burritos, and quesadillas.

    Why You Should Drink Mexican Coke

    Last updated 6 months ago

    Most people associate Mexican flavors with notable food like tacos, quesadillas, or burritos, but Mexican coke is gaining popularity throughout the nation. If you are looking for a sweet beverage that does not contain high-fructose corn syrup, this might be the drink for you:

    This soda drink uses cane sugar to get its sweet flavor. With a touch of spice and herbs, it is a full-flavored beverage that always delivers. Served in a glass bottle, it reminds a lot of people about the way they used to drink coke. Many people who drink it say it tastes sweeter and colder than the American version.

    If you want to try Mexican coke, come to San Francisco’s Pancho Villa Taqueria. The sweetness of the beverage is the perfect complement to our seafood or meat tacos. If you want quality Mexican flavors, we are always here for you. Visit our website or call (650) 288-0548 to learn more about our locations and menu options
