chavas mexican food
after a long day of chores, the beautiful mrs k and i decided it was time to treat ourselves. doing laundry, dishes, vacuuming (along with a side trip to buy vacuum bags and filters), and even power-washing the deck and a trip to the gas station after running out of gas...it's enough to make a grown couple weep.
pooper safe with a sitter, we headed off toward soulard. we didn't know where we were going to eat, but we knew we were at least going to try something in soulard. we drove up and down a couple of streets, and then we saw it on geyer: a new mexican place. well, new to us anyway. chavas mexican, it said.
whoa. seriously good stuff. the salsa was killer, and so were the margaritas. they had different flavors, like strawberry mango. deanna had the tacos, and i had the burritos. we had to force ourselves to stop eating, lest we roll out of soulard instead of drive.
a new mexican place on the list, one that seems to top even the great pueblo salis!
