Beans, like an excess of pennies or a drove of rampaging bulls, are easier to manage when encased in a soft, yet sturdy wrapping. Nab a manageable meal with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fresh Mexican fare at Taco Del Mar's locations in Wasilla, Fairbanks, and on West Tudor Road.
Named one of the United States' Top 10 Healthiest Fast Food Restaurants by Health magazine, Taco Del Mar envelopes fresh ingredients and savory meats in hand-rolled tortillas, granting eager eaters a flavor-packed meal with portability. The cantina-inspired menu of customizable burritos and tacos whisks soggy Alaskans to sunny Baja with daily made salsas and guacamole, authentic wheat, flour, spinach, or tomato-basil tortillas, and fish caught in the Gulf of Alaska. The mondo burrito ($6.99) boards rice, beans, pico de gallo, and choice of meat (carne asada steak, ground beef, shredded beef, seasoned pork, braised chicken, fish, or vegetarian/vegan) on a belly-bound train, and the taco salad ($7.49), a beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, and meat-packed portion with a crispy tortilla shell, negates the need for uncomfortable steel jaw implants.
