Cindy, I was thoroughly charmed by you, your style, your restaurant and your food! Hearing your story was inspiring, and I disagree with the judge's assessment - being from AZ, I can attest that introducing menudo to a new crowd MUST be done in baby steps, with a simple approach, but once done, you have fans for life. Nothing is better than a good soup - for mind, body & soul. The other contestants made items that were good, but trendy...you chose something thoughtful, and you went outside your comfort zone - GOOD FOR YOU! Your smile, your humbleness and your tenacity have won you a fan for life here - I have made it my mission to someone make it to Napa to visit your place, eat whatever you place before me, and thank you with a hug!
