Taqueria Guanajuato – Indianapolis, IN

asada-tacoAfter reading a great review from local food blog “Would I Buy It Again?” I had to take a few guys from work to this place for lunch.  Since it’s only about 5 miles from the office it was a quick trip.

Taqueria Guanajuato is located inside the Carniceria Guanajuatoin grocery store at 3110 N. Shadeland Ave Indianapolis, IN.  Their website lists another location on Oliver Ave. as well as Restaurante Guanajuato, which is currently under construction at the Oliver Ave. location.

Just inside the door of the grocery you hear the music and the customers.  This place is hoppin’!  This grocery has the usual assortment of taqueria-burritoMexican staples.  if you are looking for VERY GOOD prices on dried chilies it’s work a trip to this place.  You can get a huge 1lb bag of dried Ancho’s for $4.99!

The Roku, NetFlix Streaming & More!

rokuBeing hooked by the ability to stream videos from NetFlix on my laptop, I purchased a refurbished X-Box 360 to do the same in the basement (as well as play games). After using the streaming ability on the X-Box for several of my daughters slumber parties (do they still call it that?) and a few movies for the family I decided it was time to bring the streaming functionality to the family room.

Enter the Roku. This $99 device does one thing & does it VERY well! It streams select content from NetFlix, Amazon & Major League Baseball. With rumors circulating all over the internet of additional functionality coming soon $99 was a small price to pay for a new toy!

Setup is as simple as plugging the device in, hooking it to the TV using one of several wiring methods (I chose HDMI), and setting up your network connection. The Roku supports wired and wireless connections. I’m currently using it with my wireless network with great results but I plan on hard wiring it to the network soon.

Overall I have to say the device was well worth the $99 (one time) cost of admission.  I’m hoping NetFlix will release their entire catalog for streaming soon as well as the rumored new features (YouTube, Revision3, etc.).  If you are a current NetFlix subscriber and want to take advantage of their “free” streaming media offerings, check out the Roku, I think you will really enjoy it!
