Mason District residents Youness and Kristina Boukhlifi recognize the value of community involvement. That’s why they decided to have the restaurant they just opened a few months ago, Baja Bistro Fresh Mex Grille, participate in the Taste of Annandale.

Baja Bistro, in the Bradlick Shopping Center, offers Mexican and Southwestern food freshly prepared on site and customized to meet individual’s tastes.

The menu includes burritos and bowls with chicken, steak, beef, fish, shrimp, chorizo, tofu and veggie options, with premium salsas and guacamole, roasted corn, pinto beans, black beans, and rice. Tacos, salads, quesadillas, nachos, and fries round out the menu. Newly added desserts include funnel cake fries and churros.

The restaurant recently started offering beer and wine and plans to start hosting wine tastings featuring wines from Spain.
