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. 😀🇲🇽🌮❤️

Sunday sports day.

This morning we went to get our morning Biggby Coffee

They had another BOGO coupon on their Instagram

It’s pretty awesome that they have coupons. Not many coffee places do coupons at all.

And then we went over to Kroger to get some groceries for the week…

I didn’t know there was a Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros cereal…

And that’s pretty funny to me because we just had Churros yesterday.

There were some good sports on TV today. We watched Arsenal finally win again, 4-0 over Newcastle United and both Michigan and Wichita State won big. We watched a little bit of the XFL games. And finally, we watched the NBA All-Star Game. And that turned out to be a really good game.

We also made this delicious Donatos oven pizza for our late lunch…

And it turned out to be a really pretty day. We took the dogs on a long walk…

It was just another really relaxing Sunday. 😀🌄❤️

Lunch at Django.

We planned to stop at Django Western Taco yesterday for Valentine’s Day. But since we weren’t super hungry, we decide to postpone our visit until this afternoon when we could really do some more damage…

We started with some chips & salsa to start, shared Django’s incredible jerk chicken quesadilla and I also had a fried chicken taco too…

It all made for such a delicious lunch. Unfortunately for us, Django didn’t have any bread pudding today. But they did have churros…

And the churros were DY-NO-MITE!

Lunch at Django is always so very tasty and really inexpensive. We got out of there for just over $20. And you can’t beat that. 😀🌮❤️
