Mission Taco Joint on the Delmar Loop in Saint Louis Missouri - The Cookie RookieI hate when busy, mundane life gets in the way of great friendships.  I hadn’t seen my dear friend Emily since the wedding back in September, and that is just totally unacceptable!! We both have a lot going on, and time just got away from us.  I was so excited when I heard from her, and even more excited when she suggested Mexican food! My girl knows me well, obviously!

Mission Taco Joint on the Delmar Loop in Saint Louis Missouri - The Cookie Rookie Mission Taco Joint on the Delmar Loop in Saint Louis Missouri - The Cookie RookieOne of my favorite parts of town in Saint Louis is The Delmar Loop.  Filled with great finds of every kind.  It has it all.  An indie movie theater, a world class concert venue, unique shops, and amazing restaurants.  Sushi, burgers, macaroni bars, hookah lounges, ice cream shops, and Mission Taco Joint. Its the newbie on the block, but has already become a staple of the community.

Mission Taco Joint on the Delmar Loop in Saint Louis Missouri - The Cookie RookieWe tried a couple different cocktails and they were all so yummy.  I had the Raspberry Caipirinha and Emily had the El Capitan.  If you like fruity and smooth, go for the Caipirinha.  If you like serious business, go for the Capitan.  Equally good, but very different! We also had to try their Margarita, or THE Margarita as they call it.  I can see why.  That is a dang good Margarita!

Emily got the Mofu Tofu and the Nopales (Cactus) (I know…wow! So cool).  I kept it safe (and less healthy) with the Baha Fish, Grilled Chicken, and Carne Asada.

I tried them all), but my favorite was by far the Fish.  Totally and utterly delicious.  I mean, look at that thing.  We also got some Street Corn Off The Cobb.  If you go to Mission Taco Joint, you better try the street corn.  I could eat that every meal, all day long.  Yum.com.
