In Search of Authentic Mexican Tequila

As a birthday gift, a friend of mine has kindly offered to bring back a bottle of tequila from Mexico. Does anyone have any recommendations for what brand I should ask for?

Ok, I know that there's some really expensive tequila, but what I'd really like to get is something that is authentically Mexican (and I couldn't get anywhere else) and costs no more than $100.

Thanks in advance for your help!

O Ya help

There seems to be much discussion about the quantity of food vs value at O Ya. My first response to this is that we should be so lucky to have a restaurant that treats food like an art and that isn't pretentious. In fact, it's a great place to go for an anniversary. With its dim lighting and the music selection I found the restaurant had a romantic vibe.

Answering your question about what to order and my comments about quantity can be summed up as follows -- How much foie gras and truffle oil can these complainers possibly eat? Next time these people should just go to an all-you-eat-buffet or an olive garden with crap food and giant portions.

Actually, my friend and I were happy we didn't order the chef's special (a set order mutiple dishes). Instead, we enjoyed watching the food getting prepared and ordering the delicious-looking items (all of them) and after a couple of dishes we were very full and happy. Our bill was less than $200. As you can tell we're both preaching the gospel of O Ya. I wouldn't go to Boston without making a reservation.

Have a great anniversary and enjoy your meal!
