Reason why I eat too much in the States: Carnitas

Tacos y Salsas, Aurora, ColoradoLast Sunday afternoon, after having tackled a mountain of email at my second favorite coffee shop on the planet, the 9th and Downing Dazbog, I decided that I wanted to indulge in something that one cannot get in Berlin: Great Mexican food.

I drove down one of Denver’s most infamous streets, Colfax Avenue, until I spotted a rather unassuming restaurant that used to be my Father’s favorite joint.

Tacos y Salsas #1 (9103 E. Colfax Avenue, Aurora, Colorado 80010) was packed. I had to share a table, and it was worth it: The plate of Canitas, complete with rice, refried beans, guacamole, salad, grilled onions, grilled peppers, and tortillas was a bargain: I forget the exact price, but complete with the Jarritos soda, I spent $9.

Carnitas!

When I left, I was overstuffed: I ate way too much.

But this is the kind of great Mexican food that just does not exist in Europe.

And I have to indulge while I can.
