I visited a quaint dessert spot in the Houston Heights called Red Dessert Dive. You’ll know I love sweets. I could literally eat sweets daily. I could tell when I walked into the door the owner put a lot of love into the shop. It’s a small, intimate space. I think it’s great for meeting up with friends or just to drop in to grab a bite and go. The desserts on display smacked me in the face when I walked in the door.
You would of thought I was a kid in the candy the store. Thee were so many desserts it overwhelmed me. I ordered a banana pudding to go and a drip coffee with a shot of expresso. I noticed a sign from Tacodeli on the counter after I ordered. The cashier told me they collaborated with Tacodeli to offer breakfast tacos in the morning. I decided to place another order for the Papas Egg and Cheese Taco. Tacodeli made this one with organic eggs, jack cheese and mashed potatoes. I will try anything once. However, this taco was so good I’d try it again. I used Tacodeli’s house made Salsa Doṅa as dipping sauce. The sauce was a step below their hottest flavor.
