We offer vegan options as well!

Our Story;

We’re fairly new to the scene as we opened last November, but so far it’s been an auspicious beginning! I (Emily) am a big fan of regional Mexican cuisine, and over the course of my career I had been developing a menu that would celebrate the artisan street food that I adore. When COVID happened, there seemed to be a need for affordable, high-quality fare that could be accessed in a quick, contact-free environment- so Taco Dreams must have been in the stars!

We’re devoted to elevating working peoples food and having a ton of fun nourishing our community. All the maize tortillas for the tacos are handmade every morning with non-GMO heirloom corn from Oaxaca, and we try and source the rest of our ingredients as local and as organic as possible. We run specials all the time, like a Hawai’ian Plate Lunch every ‘Aloha Friday,’ as well as Tamales and our ‘Maid-Rite’ Tacos (‘The Muscatine’). We’re endeavoring to have something that everyone can feel the love with- from the hardcore foodies to vegans to families just wanting a quick and healthy meal that everyone can agree on!

Our Story;

We began our journey by introducing authentic Ethiopian food to the Fairfield Community as food vendors at Fairfield’s Saturday Farmers Markets in the summer of 2010. While working as vendors we received feedback from our customers that they would like to see us open a restaurant so they can enjoy our food any day of the week. With that in mind, we received the opportunity to serve at the Holy Spirit Church on Thursdays during lunch. This was a small step forward however, we knew we wanted to give our customers more. In 2015, we began serving at the Fairfield Arts and Convention Center 5 days a week. Our service has attracted customers not only in Fairfield but from all over Iowa. Sharing the Ethiopian food and culture with the Fairfield community has been a great joy, and we are thrilled to continue to do so.

Our most popular dish?

1. Chick peas dish ( Cholas). This dish is delicious, prepared with some unusual ingredients such as freshly roasted pomegranate seeds and roasted cumin seeds, and Tamarind.
2. Rasmalai dessert. Prepared with freshly prepared with cottage cheese, rose water, saffron, cardamom, almonds and sugar
My Story:
People come to my cafe because they want to experience freshly prepared authentic Indian dishes in which the main ingredient is love! There is a certain degree of craftsmanship that goes into preparing Indian food that begins with a prayer, grinding fresh spices, and slow cooking. The Chef (Sabita) has a Ph.D. who is a professor in business with a passion for cooking. So, this is a labor of love! Food prepared by a person who loves cooking always tastes better than one that is prepared by someone who is just doing a job!
I mostly enjoy cooking authentic traditional recipes instead of creating new recipes. Over the years, the Indian diet has undergone a transformation because of changing lifestyles and the easy availability of packaged foods. The result: many dishes that were once prepared regularly at home have been forgotten, replaced by meals that are quick to the table. My focus will continue to be on reviving these traditional Indian recipes.
