Pepita Cantina, Ballston

I suppose you could say that Pepita Cantina is being graded on an auto-curve, because immediately before going there, I went to one of its “competitors,” if you could call it that. One important thing to remember about Pepita Cantina … Continue reading

Don Tito, Clarendon

Fate: it’s one of those words that you know isn’t really true. So, what exactly was it that had me at Don Tito yesterday? Bad Luck? Divine Punishment? Did I do something bad in a previous lifetime that I don’t … Continue reading

I’d been to District Taco a few weeks ago, and really enjoyed a Burrito Mojado, but yesterday, a Basic Breakfast Taco ($2.25) fell a little short. This is a very simple dish to put out – scrambled egg, cheese, and … Continue reading
