¿Is Taco Bell Really that Swell?

Hi Y’all! Some of you maIMG_4389y know from my welcome post that my first taco was from Taco Bell and I loved it. I didn’t know what I was missing out on for so long. For several months after discovering my love for Taco Bell, I ate there a lot. It was my favorite fast food restaurant to go to. Time went on and I started eating less and less Taco Bell and I realized recently I haven’t had it in a really long time. So, for dinner one day this week I went to taco bell and got my normal order: two crunchy tacos with just cheese and two Cinnabon delights. That’s when I came to the sad realization that I am not really a big fFullSizeRenderan of Taco Bell anymore. I ate my two half filled tacos and my overly sweet Cinnabon’s and I was disappointed. The food wasn’t bad, it tasted like normal Taco Bell, but it also didn’t taste great. I’ve tried so much amazing Mexican food over the past few years and I think that the standards for my tacos are a little higher now. But, if you’re still really craving some cheap and fast Mexican food, Taco Bell will do in a pinch.

¡The New Restaurant in Town!

Hey y’all! This past weFullSizeRender 2ekend I tried a new restaurant that popped up in Prairieville. Agave Blue is advertised as a tequila and taco bar. I don’t really care so much for the tequila as I do the tacos. If a restaurant is specializing in tacos I have to try it. My family and one of my close friends decided to go out for dinner there and see if it was any good. I have to say it was great and both my parents and my friend really loved it too. To start off our meal we were given the standard complimentary chips and salsa. We ordered queso too because who doesn’t love queso. The salsa was fresh, delicious and very spicy. Even my dad thought it was spicy and that’s saying something. I ordered the beef tacos with beans and the beans were the closest you could get to authentic. Overall, this restaurant was amazing with good food and a good atmosphere.

¡Finding a Taco Truck!

Hi Y’all! I don’t know ifullsizerender-2f any of y’all have even eaten from a food truck, but if you haven’t it is a must. This past weekend I went to the Flea Market of Louisiana in Prairieville, La and they had a taco truck there. To say the least, I was very excited. The people running the truck were very friendly and pretty funny. I ordered two beef tacos and they were served minutes later, so service was great too. When I got my tacos I was immediately excited because these tacos are as close to authentic as I could get without going south of the border. They were small and served in a soft shell. The meat wasn’t grounfullsizerender-3d beef like you would normally expect from American tacos, but it was finely chopped beef. To top off it off there was just a little bit of white onions, lime, and cilantro. They were incredible!  If you ever see a Mexican food truck of any kind I would highly suggest trying it out. Most of the time the people that are running the truck grew up eating and cooking the food they are serving you so you will get a little taste of their culture.

¡A Local Favorite!

las-palmas-restaraunt-2Hi Y’all! This week I visited a favorite, local restaurant of mine, Las Palmas. I decided to take a little break from college this weekend and head home to see my parents. I live in the pretty small town of Prairieville, LA. There isn’t many options when it comes to going out to eat, especially for Mexican food.  There are a few local restaurants, but Las Palmas has been a long time favorite for me and my family. Granted, I used to get chicken fingers and fries because I didn’t like Mexican food, but that has now changed. Last night I ordered my favorite dish, Tacos! I have to say they were pretty good. Nothing overly special or exciting, but just good ole’ tacos. Even though I do love tacos, I have to say one of my favorite parts of going out to eat at most Mexican restaurant is the free chips and salsa and Las Palmas knows what they are doing with their salsa. Overall, this is a classic Mexican restaurant that will continue to serve out good food again and again.
