You can’t have everything in life I guess. I gave up on being the world’s first ballerina/private eye/scientist and I know I won’t win the lottery any time soon. But, is it so much to ask for decent, fresh Mexican food that doesn’t costs an arm and a leg? Everyone raves about Dos Taquitos, and deservedly so, but for budgetary reason, I can’t go there for a taco fix every time I want. Meanwhile, cheap Mexican restaurants are a dime a dozen, but unless you love cement-like refried beans and brown lettuce, it’s not very satisfying. With this in mind, despite hearing how awesome Chubby’s Tacos was (our pal Demandy is a fan), I was going in with very low expectations.

But let’s face it, I can’t do my grocery shopping at A Southern Season, my bank account would groan under the debt. Sometimes, you just need a good, fresh, and cheap meal. I remember lots of ramen-filled nights and how incredible good food on my meager work-study budget could be. Where, oh where was Cosmic Cantina at my school? Continue reading

I would like to start by making the embarrassing admission that we never got around to going to Raleigh Times (14 E Hargett St Raleigh, NC 27601) for the first 2 years that we lived here. I have no idea why as I had always heard great things about Raleigh Times, and I think I had been there at least once for a cup of coffee shortly after we arrived in Raleigh. However, it took my little sister coming to visit from Illinois in July for us to truly indulge in the awesome that is Raleigh Times.
