Cinco de Mayo is the pawfect excuse to dress up in traditional Mexican garb and head over to La Pollita food cart for some kick-ass tacos.
Cinco de Mayo
Many people think that May 5th (aka: Cinco de Mayo) is Mexico’s Independence Day.
Well, it would appear that those people are wrong. (Cinco de Mayo is actually a day that commemorates the time when the Mexican Army beat the French forces at the Battle of Puebla. But that’s a whole other story for another time!).
For me, Cinco de Mayo is really a time to stop and thank the gods above for all the greatness that is Mexican culture. You see, to me, there are only a few things greater in life than Mexican food.
This year, to celebrate my favorite holiday (yes, a Holiday), I decided to head over to La Pollita and feast to my hearts content.
La Pollita Food Truck
Tucked away in the delightfully green & luscious Midtown Garden Center (pictures above), La Pollita food cart serves some of the most drool-worthy tacos the humans and I have ever had.
I’m talkin’ eat-past-your-comfort-zone-because-it-tastes-so-delicious, delicious.
Don’t Believe me? Look for yourself:
How do you wash down tacos? With churros con chocolate cliente (churros with hot chocolate), of course!
Think of churros as fried dough sticks covered in cinnamon and sugar. The best way to eat a churro is to take them and dunk them in some chocolate. Fried dough sticks with chocolate sauce? I would say that is #winning.
This is how it’s done:
Midtown Garden Center is super pet-friendly. Just make sure to keep in mind that it is a pee-mail dream!! A space full of nothing but plants is definitely a GIANT temptation for us dogs. Make sure to keep us on a leash unless you want us to hose down the place.
Also, you can totally BYOB (Bring Your Own Beer/Alcoholic Beverage) so don’t be shy and bring the largest tequila you can find. 🙂
