My daughter keeps talking about a place called Tacodeli where she loves to eat -- even now that she has gestational diabetes. She claims that she can eat two tacos here, without any spike in her blood sugars, whereas doing the same at any other taco restaurant would be bad. Very bad. I told her I'd have to see it to believe it.

Love, love, love the table art, by local hot rod artist Cindy Raschke, aka CRASH.
The Tacodeli mission is to provide delicious food, all made in-house daily, using the best of ingredients -- organic and local when available. You can even click a link on their website to see where their food is sourced. Turns out they get meat from Richardson Farms, same people I've been buying my meat from for years, via The Bountiful Sprout. They also have many vegetarian and gluten free options on their menu.

But none of that matters, if the food doesn't taste good, right?

Above you see The Heather, with grilled queso fresco, organic refried black beans, guacamole, lettuce and tomato. Below is the Frontera Fundido Chicken Taco, with grilled chicken breast, jack cheese glaze, and sauteed poblano-onion rajas. We opted to have both served on their whole wheat tortillas -- something I've never been able to convince the folks at Mima's to offer.

I just have one thing to say to my daughter. I BELIEVE! I BELIEVE!
