Nora Herrera cares about her customers’ health. The self-made entrepreneur of Nora’s Tacos on the south-east side of the Sabinal city limits plans to open her restaurant as soon as her liquor license arrives, or any day now.
Her breakfast tacos have been a staple for locals and travelers alike for the past 18 years. Patrons have been stopping from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. for carne guisada, bacon, egg and cheese, and the occasional specialty meal since Herrera and her family arrived in town. Her reputation for the freshest food and the loving care with which it is prepared has given her a five-star rating on Yelp.
She will serve alkaline water, and brew her coffee and tea and cook with this water which she says is “. 08 with no chemicals or bacteria.” The system cost her over $1,000, but her concern for her customers’ health and quality of life dictated this decision for this feature. She will have a full salad bar and serve healthy meals like salmon and squash.
“People need to eat healthy for the good of their life,” Herrera said.
