So we were in the middle of moving, spending the whole day bringing up some of the smaller items to the seventh floor and getting back down just to grab another box and start the cycle all over again. We didn’t realized how we happened to miss lunch and later, dinner, but around 8 pm after bringing up the last piece of our belongings, we found ourselves starving and tired.

I tend to believe it was destiny (and pure hunger) that brought us to the local organic shop where we bought the first thing that was on the menu. Little did I know that the combination of a warm flavorful tortilla, seasoned roasted chickpea, and cauliflower bits, crunchy kale, and cabbage slaw would become my favorite so quickly.

Usually, I become addicted to one particularly delicious food very quickly, and I tend to eat it over and over again for breakfast, lunch, and dinner until I’m literally sick of it. So the next day, I went to that place again, and the tacos were no longer on the menu. When I asked if they only serve those on a particular day, the guy answered, “Well yeah, we serve it every Tuesday in January.”

“You’re saying the next one will be in 2019?”

“Should be.”

I didn’t like the answer much, but the guy was generous enough to hold the line and run through the list of ingredients with me.

I got back home and began experimenting. It wasn’t my first try (nor was it my second or third), but I finally came close to that taste I initially tried to imitate. And you know what? We’ve been eating those quite often, and I’m still in love with them.
