Muy Bueno!

I covered my current favorite Mexican restaurant for this week's column. Check it out! Vegas Values: A Winning Combo.

We took my mom there to celebrate her birthday a few weeks ago. She only started to like Mexican within the last couple years. Steak quesadillas are her bag. She approved of the one at Casa Don Juan. "M'mmm the tortilla is so crisp", she said.

I'm always trying to get her to expand her horizons and try new food. Usually she turns me down, but she tried carnitas and the tamale, much to my surprise. "M'mmm good", she says. Yeah. I know. Maybe one day she'll step out of her comfort zone and realize there's a whole world of culinary delights out there. It begins with one bite, after all.
