Being a [proud] native Californian, I grew up having the best & most affordable Mexican food at my fingertips. I ate bean, rice and cheese burritos weekly. Enter Dallas. There are renditions of what Dallasites call "Tex-Mex", but they hold no candle to my beloved Californian, lard loving, burrito shacks.
But the other day it happened...I found one. Rico's Tacos. While this Texan shack has no savory beans or rice, they sell homemade, well-marinated, tacos and sugar cane coke (ahem, of which has 58 grams of sugar). And so, for a brief moment, I reached into my wallet, pulled out four crisp dollar bills and enjoyed this nostalgic event. And vowed to come back regularly.
