Let's [TACO] bout' It!

I tend to go back to Houston once a month because let's face it, although I love New York, I miss it! Houston is my grounding place, where I go to refuel and be refreshed, and I make an effort to link up with my friends every time I'm in town. My home in Houston is in an area referred to as Eado, located near Minute Maid ballpark. This particular weekend there was a small festival called Taco World Houston, all I needed to hear was tacos and no questions asked I'm there!

We gathered the gang my sister, friends, and some of their kids and made it a family field trip. They used the median strip of Navigation Blvd in Eado to house the festival. There were several different vendors with festive clothing, jewelry, and even henna. For the important stuff (TACOS duhhh) there were several different food trucks to choose from. The gang opted for food from Tacos Del Julio food truck, and they did not disappoint! We decided to get a little bit of everything from the menu so street tacos, quesadillas, loaded fries (OMG I can taste it all again now). Now we can't have tacos without margaritas there is like a law against that somewhere, so we stopped by one of the booths and grabbed a lime/strawberry swirl margarita to get the party started.

After walking around for a bit listening to the live latin band we decided to treat the kids to some churros from the "Come And Take It" churro booth. Personally I'm not too much a fan of sweets, but they were really delicious. We purchased one fruity pebbles, one original, and a sprinkled churro sundae.

All in all it was a cool neighborhood experience that cost nothing to check out. The kids enjoyed themselves, the adults had fun, and I got to enjoy familiar faces in my second home, everyone wins. I'm already plotting on my next adventure when I return to Houston!
