Casa Vaca Taqueria 

We always do a little happy dance when a new restaurant opens up in the village.  As far as we are concerned there can never be enough good ones.  So we were very hopeful when the old Mexican joint closed (not so good) and a new one was to take its place.  Casa Vaca Taqueria was a wonderful surprise. The food was really good, it was very family-friendly and the family running it were really nice. It’s not your overly cheesy heavy Mexican, but it’s not quite as vegetable intensive as say, Cocina Verde.  Lolo ordered the nachos, can’t go wrong there. Aidan ordered a bacon blue and honey quesadilla. It could’ve been really bad or really good and it turned out to be really good although quite heavy and could have easily been dessert!  Mark got the open faced shrimp quesadilla and I got the shrimp tacos. No complaints all-around although the spicy shrimp wasn’t spicy. But we will forgive them that!  Added bonus – they make a kale side salad that even my boys liked!  They treated the dudes like little adults and it is now one of the dudes’ favorite restaurants in the Village.
