Yum! I went to the Beaner Bar today. My coffee was delicious, it was a mexican mocha with hemp milk. Chocolatey and yummy. I also had two tamales. They reminded me of the tamales i had in hell's kitchen, with the really moist dough, but they were much more generous with the filling. I poured green sauce on them. The green sauce was creamy, maybe it had avocado in it? I forgot to ask Veronica (who is from Houston!). Its a cute bar with coffee can lights and mosaic tiles and a rock star bathroom. Its a comfy place to sit around and talk and everyone there is friendly. Definitely check it out if you like coffee (or tamales!). I was too full to try the Vegan Pumpkin Cupcakes sweetened with Agave Nectar. I love that they have agave nectar and raw sugar available. Also, it means its relatively diet friendly for me. Sinus friendly too, considering I can choose from soy or hemp milk if I don't want cow milk.
Tomorrow they're having a big Dia de los Muertos celebration. Live music, alter making, and a mexican plate (tamale, rice, beans, sugar skull) for $5. Check it out, it'll be fun!
