Costa Vida

Our SIL owns the Costa Vida's in the Phoenix area, and when we are in town we must get our "Costa-Fix".
I love their food. How I wish there was a Costa Vida in St. George.

Everything is made fresh that day, and they pride themselves in cooking healthy.
I love everything on their menu, but I admit I do have a few favorites.
My #1 choice is their salads. Although today I had a fish taco and it was right up there in the "double yum" category.
They make the best chips and queso I've ever had. My SIL's family made some at home last night, and the party came to a complete stop while we all devoured huge bags of chips dipped in the hot cheese mixture. Even the small children stopped their running around, and plopped themselves down where ever they could find a place to have chips and queso.
My favorite dessert of all time is their flan. I sometimes sample other restaurants version of flan, and have so far not found any that even begin to compare.

Our son-in-law Daniel Dayton. We call him Dano because he is Daniel Dayton II.
Dano just opened the Costa Vida in Queen Creek this last year:
21152 E. Rittenhouse Rd. #102, QC, AZ 85242 (480) 888-7230

Isaak refers to his dad's restaurant as "Toasta Beeda".

Meanwhile at home, Dano and Amy are enjoying their new daughter who I am proud to announce only wakes up at night for a brief feedings and then go promptly back to sleep.
We are all IN LOVE.

That baby is darling! Congratulations! Did you know there is a Costa Vida in Cedar City? You might have to run up there every once in a while!

You couldn't talk your son in law into moving to St. George to open up his restaurant???!!! That is good food---can't say we have one in this part of Wyoming either. :)
