Cinco Estrellas is a Honduran restaurant on Milpas Street that is not easy to spot. In fact, it’s not visible from the street at all. Look for the laundromat and walk around to the back of the building. I was there for a weeknight dinner and there was 3-4 other tables in the small space [...]
I love tacos. Their small size means low commitment to a big meal, and the opportunity for more variety. Every taqueria in town has its unique selling point. It could be that they are cheap and fast. It could be that the tortillas are homemade. Perhaps one place has an utterly delicious mole, and another [...]
Tacos al pastor. Tacos al pastor. Tacos al pastor.
Props to an acquaintance, Jonathan, who had given me some details about Cielito that got me excited to eat here. He spoke of high quality, well-sourced fresh ingredients. That, I can get behind. My friend Eric was in town for the holidays, we were in the mood to splurge, so we came here a week [...]
This was a very opportunistic visit, and I was caught without my good camera, or even my average camera. All camera phone, so sorry about the crummy pictures. Still! Rudy’s has moved into a bigger space in that fine stripmall known as the Calle Real Shopping Center. Just next door to a shop I was [...]
It’s time to start off-loading old routines and making new ones. With the passing of an old friend – my First Thursday tradition of getting dessert at a little restaurant that has now closed – I had to begin looking for a new one. There are many places I enjoy grabbing a small plate or [...]
Romanti-Ezer serves up some of my favorite mole in town, but going there is complicated. I don’t live downtown, I don’t work downtown, and by the time I do get downtown, they are usually closed. They open for special times at night, though! But it’s for the drunk crowds, which is not my bag. Case [...]
I always thought that liking taquitos was a little gringo of me, but I admit it, I really like them. They’re easy finger food, crunchy, and have a yummy filling. Before I became more of a taco junkie, I would dependably order taquitos if they were offered on a menu. At the Mercados during Fiesta? [...]
Tonight’s special was posole, $8. Delicious and filling, and don’t forget the tortilla chips, too.
Time to walk through the eastside to see the wonderful Christmas lights, and then eat tacos!
