Thanks to Alexandra for sending: “Elle (3221 Mt Pleasant Street, NW) is doing a taco pop-up this Tuesday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I had The tacos last week when they did a pop-up at Bammy’s in Navy Yard and they were BOMB!!! Here is the link to the Elle pop as they are only doing pre-orders here.

La Tejana is run by a Colombian woman and her partner who live in Mount Pleasant, so it’s a local business that people would be supporting.”
