Inventions of jicama and duck and roasted cauliflower with pickled this and that give the Mexican staple an edge, a kick that the luchadores and Day of the Dead skulls looming on walls surely approve of. Given the abundance of taco options within city limits, it seems silly to drive 22 minutes north across county lines for tacos. But a friend of a friend swears by Antojitos Byanca. On the taco stand's simple website, I first fall for a photo of the restaurant's sign — an adorable 11-year-old girl fanning out her festive, Jalisco-style yellow dress. I'm also smitten by the name, Antojitos Byanca. Translation: Cravings Byanca. Clumsy and endearing. Lastly, I'm a girl who appreci- ates humility. This is what the owners have written on their site: "We know there are more restaurant around here but we're glad that you choose us. We want to thank each and everyone of you for your support, we love to hear from all of you good or bad we still appreciate all of you." The taco stand sits like an island off Vet- erans Memorial Parkway in a snug, newly constructed hut with walk-up and drive-th- ru windows. It's across the street from South Oldham Middle and High schools Antojitos Byanca 6004 Pleasant Colony Court (Crestwood)
