Taqueria 251.

A new taco shop just opened up in Northside called Taqueria 251. And this afternoon we walked down Hamilton Avenue to check it out the new place in the neighborhood…

I’m digging their murals…

Taqueria 251 was still waiting for their liquor license…

We sat out on their very spacious patio…

We started with some chips and salsa…

The trio of salsas came in these half-full little squeeze bottles…

We thought it was kind of an odd presentation. Especially in the middle of a pandemic. But the salsas were all pretty good. The green was the mild and the one on the right was really spicy. The middle one was my favorite. But they all had really good flavors.

We ordered the Esquite as an appetizer. The Esquite is sweet corn cut off the cob brought to the table in a cup served with a side of spicy mayo, cotija cheese, Mexican cream, tajin and lime. And it’s all mixed right at the table…

And as soon as our Esquite was prepared, our tacos arrived…

We ordered the Al Pastor, Papa and Chicharron…

We also ordered the Gringa with the cheese crust…

The tacos were just okay. They were really just meat on a tortilla. The meats were really flavorful but a little dry. The Gringa was good. I enjoyed the cheese crust. The Papa was my favorite because it actually had a crema and cotija cheese on it. The Esquite was so dang good. It was the best thing I’ve eaten in a minute. The flavors were just amazing.

We also ordered their churros because I love churros and they don’t show up on a lot of menus. So we almost had to order them…

The churros were amazing too. They were served with a side of nutella, goats milk candy, condensed milk and sugar and cinnamon blend…

The Esquite and the churros were out-of-this-world incredibly good. I would definitely stop back at Taqueira 251 just for those two items, and maybe a Papa taco. It was pretty tasty too.

It’s always fun when a new place opens up in our neighborhood. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐ŸŒฎโค๏ธ

And the rest of our Saturday.

It was a grey and overcast Saturday morning in Northside…

Good morning from Northside…

We ran over to the grocery this morning…

They had both the panda bear and the train again today…

And they had lots of my new favorite BBQ Chicken flavor ramen…

There were some great balloons this morning too…

We stopped to get our Saturday morning Mad Llama coffee

We had this shelf in our kitchen…

Genifer ordered a new sideboard to go in its place…

It took a bit to put together but it turned out pretty nice…

It took too long for Oscar. He was out…

For lunch, we walked down Hamilton Avenue to check out Northside’s new taco shop called Taqueria 251. It was pretty good stuff. I don’t know that we’ll be rushing back. They had this corn appetizer called Esquite that was out of this world good. And they had incredible churros for dessert. I think we’ll still be satisfying our taco cravings at Django Western Taco. But I think our perfect meal would combine the best from the two places.

And good evening from Northside…

And from our backyard…

Before we headed upstairs, we stopped to admire our new sideboard…

It looks really nice in our kitchen. We like it a lot.

then we soldiered through The Reckoning on Netflix. It was just plain bad. There wasn’t one likable character in the entire series. So not good. At all. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒ„๐Ÿผ๐Ÿš‚๐ŸŽˆโ˜•๏ธโค๏ธ

Worlds Mental Health Day.

Today is Worlds Mental Health Day. I loved today’s Milk & Mocha Bear

I like the message of this one too from last year’s World Mental Health Day...

Be kind. Always. Those are great words to live by.

And don’t worry so much about things you can’t control. Same goes for silly work emails. I really love Milk & Mocha bear. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿปโค๏ธ
