Primo and Mosaic (Tucson short report)

I finally went to Primo by myself so I could have the mussels and zeppole without having to fight off my husband and daughter for them. Two of the best dishes in all of Tucson!

Had a machaca burrito at Mosaic for breakfast, and while the shredded beef was a bit dry and stringy, it hit the spot. I was fascinated by the woman who hand-makes those gigantic tortillas! Can anyone tell me if the lunches or dinners there are good? TIA!

    "Can anyone tell me if the lunches or dinners there are good?"

    Yes. Reliable, consistent place. Best albondigas soup I've ever had -- highest recommendation.

    Yeah, those tortillas are great, aren't they?

    Note there's a second Teresa's on the northside, near Walmart. Food just as good, but plainer digs and no tortilla lady.

    Happy chowing --

      Thanks, Pete! But it wouldn't be the same without her.
