Well … early Tuesday morning, on my way into town from the CTP tour … there was a sign in front of the restaurant … “Andale Cafe opening May 20” … that was that very day, Tuesday! For the rest of the drive home (fortunately for the rest of the guys in the van, only 1/4 mile), I kept singing “Andale Cafe – Opens Today” and doing a bit of a “happy dance” along with it.
Thursday night, Ms Greentwig & I swung by to check things out – as it turns out, the place is now run by a former waiter of Ay Caramba and the menu is very, very similar to that of Ay Caramba – o rapturous joy! It looked like the dessert menu was a little bigger, and tacos are now sold by the pair rather than individually. Also, tuna tacos look to have a different sauce. Oh, there are now several bean choices: black beans, pinto beans, refried beans, and refried beans w/ chorizo. The only semi-bad thing is that they have yet to get their liquor license, but they hope to within the next month or so – and they have glass bottles of Jarritos, so really, who cares if they have a liquor license or not?!?!
So … if you were a fan of Ay Caramba, I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed by Andale Cafe. If you never went to Ay Caramba but thought about it – what the heck are you waiting for? Get over there and spend some $$ – ANDALE!
