If you live in Phoenix and haven’t yet tried Gallo Blanco, do. The tacos on Tuesday are buy 2 get one 1 free. The white sangria comes with a glass full of fresh cut fruit. The servers are eclectic and kind. And if you’ve got time to kill, hit the pool at the Clarendon before or after. It is spectacular.

The best aspects of the menu: the guacamole (with diced citrus), agua frescas, huevos rancheros and the beans. Oh, the beans. Something so simple and yet so rarely this plate-licking good. Reasonably priced, Gallo is fast becoming one of my favorite restaurants.

(I may or may not have bought one of their t-shirts after brunch yesterday. I am a sucker for supporting great local businesses and if they feed me? Well. Even better.)
