In many Orem restaurants, they celebrate customer’s birthdays by singing to the special guest of honor. There are special traditions that develop within a business culture and birthday singing seems to be one of them.
At Milagros, we do not sing “Happy Birthday” in the dining room. It always seems so insincere with I’m eating out and watch waiters huddled around a table singing birthday regards.

I explored hundred of “roadside taco carts” or Taquerias throughout Mexico. The Chiva (goat) district of Petatlan, Mexico, where each shack serves a different cut of goat, offered a unique and exciting experience. From goat tongue to brains… very little went to waste.
