Do you ever have cravings that seem to haunt you? I do! In fact I am having one right now. I am in desperate need of tortillas! In my opinion, the best place to find homemade tortilla is at Rosa’s Cafe. Rosa’s Cafe originated in West Texas, which is where I am from. It’s menu includes some really delicious and fast tex-mex favorites, not to mention queso that is to die for! But the best thing about Rosa’s Cafe are the flour tortillas that they make fresh. You can even watch them being made! They are so fluffy and flavorful that my mouth is watering as I type this.
In my home town Rosa’s is an institution. It is the place where everyone in the town goes to hang out. In a small town with not much to do, Rosa’s always seemed to be the place where everything was happening. Rosa’s was the place you went after the Friday night football games, school dances, or even just to meet up with your buddies. On a trip home to see my family, Rosa’s is the first stop I make.
So is it really the tortillas that I miss or just the memories that those tortillas reignite in my mind? The answer is both. I love the quick tex-mex food that Rosa’s is so famous for and I also love the feeling of home that it gives me. Luckily for me they just built a Rosa’s Cafe in Cedar Park, Tx. Although it is about 20 minutes from my apartment I know it will be well worth the trip. So I’m gathering up my friends from my home town that share the same love of tortillas as I do, and we are going on a road trip. It may not be exactly the same but good friends, good food, and that old familiar feeling will be enough to make it a great time.
You know you want some!
