Laredo has grown to stand out among the rest
by Maria Salas
Much of what makes Laredo unique is its local cuisine. There is a flurry of options available for any kind of craving you might be having. Here at DeLaredo our mission is to provide you with all the latest trends going on in the city of Laredo. We love to showcase local restaurants, artists, talent, and people who are making a difference in the Gateway City. We offer you delicious options for a different night out. Laredo is filled with so much talent and we do what we do because local cuisine, talent, and artistry is important. Laredo has grown to stand out and not fit in. We have a culture all of our own and it is important for us to showcase it.
Taking advantage of dining local is an opportunity that not many can offer. Buying and dining local helps preserve Laredo’s diversity and flavor. Restaurants like Tabernilla, Sushi Madre, El Capataz, or Chocolateka, among others, offer Laredo a unique taste. You cannot find a similar taste elsewhere. No place else has what Laredo offers. Besides, Laredo offers a taste of different cultures. Apart from having some of the best Mexican food of South Texas, there is a multitude of flavors for every palette. Our multiculturality provides citizens and tourists alike a flavor not found anywhere else.
The local restaurants you visit offer you a one of a kind experience. Restaurant owners and chefs are very knowledgeable about what they offer. You get wholesome ingredients from someone who genuinely cares about what you’re consuming. When you buy local, you are supporting our local economy. Dining local helps create jobs and boosts local economy. For example, when you spend $15 in a restaurant, that owner can then take those $15 and spend them at a local coffee shop, the coffee shop owner then turns around and goes to the local farmer’s market. The spending becomes a chain reaction where the money you invest in local businesses stays within the community supporting local services within our city. The money stays in the community instead of it going to buying a new yacht for an already rich businessman.
Buying local helps to support families working hard at what they love to do. Visiting a restaurant from the city and dining from there helps to support a family by helping to pay bills, helping put food on the table and helping to provide for any needs that need to be met. It also helps owners provide for their families and what they need. Whether that be new school uniforms or dance classes, along with supporting local restaurants you are also supporting local talent. It supports them as well as you. You might not know it, but Laredo is brimming with undiscovered talent. Laredo has so much potential and the talent within the heart of the city speaks volumes as to what the city can grow to become. Laredo has a lot to offer not just with food, but with art and music as well.
Dining local isn’t just about spending a little extra for a great meal. It is going the extra mile to keep investing in delicious restaurants and local families that help Laredo remain vibrant, diverse, and fun. We at DeLaredo encourage you to visit a local restaurant and take a chance on investing in it; you will not regret it.
