But not just any tacos. Head to La Nueva Fresh & Hot on Webb Chapel Road in Dallas. While you wait for your tacos, watch the tortilla machine crank out a never-ending supply of those super-soft carriers of all manner of fillings, those foldable wonders that feed the soul.
My tasty trio: rajas (roasted poblano peppers), frijol refrito (refried beans) and papas (potato). The one with the green chile peeking out is the rajas taco. Choose from corn or flour tortillas. I went with corn. Yummm 😀
I eyed these for next time: nopales (cactus) and Mexican papas!
On the chalkboard you’ll find several vegetarian and vegan choices (unusual for an authentic Mexican spot) as well as meat-based ones. The other board lists a ton of meal options.
Take home tubs of fresh red or green salsa and cactus salad from the refrigerator case. And a stack of tortillas, of course.
Just two bucks!
La Nueva Fresh & Hot has a few tables and chairs if you want to eat in. I’m not a bit surprised it has 4.5 stars on Yelp. I give it five.
Wordplay makes life more fun. Look at the puns that showed up in different (if unlikely) places.
1. At the grocery store
2. At a concert
I love this one! Why’d you go to that concert? Ya know … Jazz Becuzz! 😀
I’ve been to two Jazz Becuzz concerts in the last couple months. The first featured five Dallas singers (Carolyn Lee Jones, Breggett Rideau, Jennifer Martin, Mahogany Miller and Andrea Wallace, with Larry Davis (piano), Buddy Mohmed (bass) and Jaelun Washinton (drums). What a dazzling array of singing talent and top-notch accompanists. The second featured The Brehms — delightful musicians with a great sense of humor!
The Filter Building sits on the southwest bank of White Rock Lake.
The Filter Building once housed a system to purify lake water for city consumption. In the 1950s, the city began to rely on its other lakes for water, so the Filter Building stopped serving its original function. Today you can rent it for private and corporate events.
Glad they left the name and the very cool sign untouched.
Mauve magic of Texas mountain laurel
The white structure is a boat garage.
The water looks fine. Let’s go.
I took these pictures one misty morning last month. Here’s a sunny day post on White Rock Lake from four years ago.
