Guys, Bloomfield Hills is only about 35 minutes from my house, but it admittedly feels like another world to me. I rarely go out that way, so when I do, I’m always like “Whaaattt? What is this land? What are all these weird roads I’ve never heard of and this hilliness?” I’m an East Sider – I don’t do hills! But OK, I can do hills if it means going to Mex again.

What a beautiful, trippy place to step into! Check out the second photo above, which was a view of the ceiling above where my friend and I sat. It’s a veritable art display! Mex’s website characterizes its style as Alice in Wonderland-inspired.

The restaurant was my friend’s suggestion; we were in the general area and went there for drinks and dinner. Instead of getting entrees, we ended up sharing an appetizer: the Everything Guac. Read the menu description of this bad boy: “fresh corn chips; MEX guacamole, bacon, pepitas, roasted garlic, grilled corn, queso blanco, grilled red onion.” YES! Bacon in guacamole? Absolutely! The smoky flavor of the bacon compliments it quite well, actually. It was glorious. And it was filling! For two people, a bowl of Everything Guac was sufficient. But I would love to come back and sample additional fare.

I’d characterize Mex’s menu as experimental gourmet Tex-Mex. There are specialty tacos with fillings such as marinated pork and pineapple, fried cod, and curried vegetables; a southwestern version of Sloppy Joe’s laced with barbecue sauce and pickled vegetables called Sloppy José Sliders; and a Mexican chocolate cake soaked in three different types of booze (Irish cream, rum, and coffee liquor). WOW to that last one! I NEED to try that.
