downtown mesa, you're making me happy.

Taken at the Mesa Urban Garden (next door to RE)
 Dearest Republica Empanada,

Everyday I crave you. Your warm and gooey bean and cheese empanandas, your black bean salad, and your perfectly seasoned yuca fries. You are the ying to my yang, the beat to my groove and the wind beneath my wings. To quote Lena Del Rey, “baby, you’re the best.” Keep doing what you’re doing, and if you could invite the owl guy back sometime, I think people would be happy for it.

Love you,
Ashley

I love Latin American food! we have a nice Caribbean Vegetarian restaurant not so far from home (10min walking) and we looooove it so much that we have even tried some recipes ourselves at home! :)

Hello Pepsi in a glass bottle! Love. This all looks so fun! There was an owl guy in Nottingham (England) on my birthday, I almost got to hold one and then I chickened (lol) out.

Ahhh I live in Scottsdale and I've never heard of RE (in my defense I've only lived in AZ for 5 years) It looks deeeee-lish! I'm so there this weekend! Thanks :D
