Usually, we head over to the Scoreboard in Woburn for drinks and wings but since we were celebrating a birthday, we headed to Masa's Southwest Bar and Grill where we celebrated the last two birthdays of people in our office, including mine.
We left right after work and got there early around 5:30 PM and got our usual seating at tables by the entrance. It was still quiet and we were among the first ones there.

This time, I wanted to try something different so I got the drink special of the night which was a Reposado tequila margurita with a hint of vanilla liqueur. At first, I was a bit hesitant, who mixes lime, salt and vanilla together? The waitress assured me it would be a great drink, so I decided to try it. The drink was delicious! All the flavors balanced each other out and it was a smooth margarita.
For food, we shared the "House Chips" with salsa and guacamole. When we first starting going to Masa's, we mistakenly assumed that the "House chips" were free and "on the house" so we kept them coming. Little did we know, those tasty chips costs $8.75 each.
Most of us each got a combo tapas platter which offer 10 heavenly bites of food which ranges.
Tonight's platter included:
- Grilled chourizo with cranberry chutney
- Poached Shrimp on Tostones
- Cucumber with Dill Cottage Cheese
- Vegetables with Poblano Ranch Dressing
- Chicken Taquito (x2)
- Jalapeno Empanada
- BBQ Pork Spring Roll
- "Bruschetta" like Toast with cheese and tomatoes
The combo platter usually comes with a delicious bacon wrapped stuffed date, but they didn't have any tonight.
On Thursday nights, they offer the combo tapas platter for $5.00 all night long and between 5-7PM on the other nights.
