Pretty darn real Mexican at Calgary Farmers' Market

In the bay where that seafood place was momentarily at CFM, we now (opened today!) a REAL Mexican place called Don.... something. Don Antonio? I think Don Antonio. They have a full menu of tacos-burritos-flautas and such, NO SHREDDED LETTUCE, CORN tortillas for tacos- it's enough to make me cry.

I only had the Carne Asado Tacos today but they leave me with great hope: 4 tacos of nice beef with a light slather of their red salsa, cilantro, green onions and radishes. No hateful lettuce! No cheddar! No pico de gallo either but these were very good. Unfortunately you can't order tacos a la carte but the rice and beans were pretty good too. 4 tacos and rice and beans are $9.75. Yes, you can get four tacos for maybe $6 in SF or wherever, but this is pretty fantastic.

I look forward to trying one of my fave things- a real chile colorado burrito with beef and potatoes- something I've never even seen on menu in Canada.
