One of the things I wanted to do over our time off of work was to try a new restaurant that was outside of our little area we always frequent. Tom was in when I told him I based my Yelp search on the word 'taco'. I found a place called La Condesa Gourmet Taco Shop and saw that they have a salsa bar that is stocked with about a dozen different salsas they make in house.
The salsas they offer range from traditional red and green salsas to varieties like pecan salsa, jicama salsa and even a peanut salsa. They were all great, but the pecan was definitely my favorite.
I ordered a Mayan Cochinita Pibil Taco and a Oaxaca Black Mole Chicken Taco. Both were amazing, but the mole was definitely my favorite. Tom got 2 Gaucho Steak tacos with Chimichurri and a Sonoran Carne Asada Taco. He loved his too. We actually liked this place so much that we invited some friends and went back a couple of days later.
So in 2013 I resolve to try some more new places outside of our usual neighborhood and comfort zone. Not sure how many of these trips Tom will be willing to take but I am hoping this is the year he turns a culinary corner. Cross your fingers for me.
