Creative Loafing hosted our first Eat My Charlotte Foodie Tours on Saturday, Nov. 7. The tour featured authentic tacos from restaurants down South Boulevard, along with Mexican beers and churros. Did you happen to see a red double-decker bus driving around town? That was us!

If you missed out on this tour, we'll have another Foodie Tour hitting the streets in January. Stay tuned for info about which food we will feature next...

On Saturday we'll be eating four tacos, Mexican beers, chips and salsa, and churros, so be sure to wear your stretchy pants ... or even better, overalls (no waistband)!

Taco Tour prep in progress

Posted By on Thu, Nov 5, 2009 at 6:10 PM

For those of you who are attending our Saturday "Eat My Charlotte Foodie Tour: Tacos," get excited.

Today I went out with our publisher to hand pick your beer for the double-decker bus ride. We stopped at Supermercado Romero's on South Boulevard and hauled out these authentic goodies for you:

  • Modelo and Tecate!

And while we were there, we couldn't resist purchasing some of the warm baked goods from the panederia y pasteria!


The yummy scent of sweet breads and cookies envelope the store calling customers over to the display of goodies spanning an entire wall. The store bakes all their breads and pastries in-house throughout the day so they are amazingly fresh.
