Passing the Buck
Alamexo (268 S. State, 801-779-4747, Alamexo.com) is well-known for its outstanding, upscale, regional Mexican cuisine crafted by chef/owner Matt Lake. Well, on Thursdays taco lovers can indulge in Matt's mouth-watering tacos at prices as low as—or even lower than—your favorite taco cart. Every Thursday in Alamexo's entryway bar, a meat taco and a vegetarian taco are available for a mere $1 apiece. For that single dollar, bar guests are able to enjoy tacos such as carnitas y salsa verde cruda, tacos flor de calabaza y salsa frijoles y hoja Santa, tacos de bistek y salsa molcajete, and tacos hongos y salsa guajillo. Taco options will change weekly, and a featured bebida (beverage) will also be offered.

Tuesday through Saturday, from 8-10:30 a.m., guests can enjoy breakfast items such as bagels (with schmears and spreads), bagel beignets, corned beef hash, blintzes and fried egg sandwiches with Taylor ham for their morning meal. This calls for a hearty mazel tov!
