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 $9, you get $18 worth of fresh Mexican fare at Taco Del Mar's Place d'Orléans location.
Taco Del Mar, named one of the United States' Top 10 Healthiest Fast Food Restaurants by Health magazine, envelops fresh ingredients and savoury meats in hand-rolled tortillas for customizable, flavour-packed meals with portability. The cantina-inspired menu showcases such headliners as the mondo burrito, which boards rice, beans, pico de gallo, and a choice of meat or veggies on a belly-bound train ($5.69–$7.29). Meanwhile, healthy taco salads with beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, and meat cradled in a crispy tortilla shell ($6.79–$7.99) negate the need for uncomfortable steel-jaw implants. Each offering can meet mouths in vegetarian or gluten-free vestments or can arrive sporting ground beef, braised chicken, slow-cooked beef, carne-asada steak, or carnitas pork. Salsas and guacamole made daily instantly transport taste buds to sunny locales, provided the buds can produce the proper documents.
