Sudden Sadness

Yesterday, I had the urge for carnitas tacos from Chile's on Troost, f/k/a Habaneros. As regular readers know, I was filled with joy when I met first visited this restaurant, and I have postulated that their tamales may be the best in the universe. But, yesterday, I wanted their carnitas tacos - double corn tortillas over-stuffed with sharply spiced beef, peppers and onions. Good eats.

I was so eager for the coming treat that the complete absence of cars in the parking lot meant nothing to me other than the joyful thought that I would not have to wait in line to place my order. It wasn't until I pulled on the unbudging door that the awful truth dawned to me - Chile's on Troost is no more.

Yeah, we noticed this last week. We've been eating there a couple times a week, and nobody said a thing. Just, boom!

If you find out why, let us know. If they're setting up somewhere else, I definitely want to keep giving them my business.

Until then, we share your pain.

BTW, speaking of Mexican food, did you know that the word "avocado" is derived from the ancient Aztec word ahuacatl, which meant testicle?

That being the case, I don't even want to know where "guacamole" came from.

Those Aztecs could be some brutal bastards.
