And what to my wondering eyes should appear beside the cash register at La Hacienda? A freezer full of Las Paletas. Oh, happy day!
The Paz sisters' Throwdown-winning ice pops have made their way from the near-clandestine paletas boutique on 12th Avenue South to the beloved taqueria on Nolensville Road, where a jewel-colored frosty array of hibiscus, chocolate-coconut, chocolate chip, Mexican caramel, avocado and more are available for $2.50...a pop.
Somebody over at LaHa must have sprouted a sweet tooth recently, because a display case of churros (Mexican doughnuts) also debuted on the counter beside the register. (Though, as for that, if you've really got a hankering for fried dough, you'd be well advised to take a couple of right turns out of the parking lot and cross your fingers that the red light is on at the Krispy Kreme on Thompson Lane.)
