TACO TUESDAYS

 
 

“Let’s Taco About it”. There are many kinds of tacos and many different styles, but at the end of it all, Tacos are amazing. “corn or flour” The base essential ingredient of a taco. Corn tortillas are the traditional way to eat a taco and gluten free, but not a fan of corn, no worries we have flour tortillas just for you.

Tacos main focus is of course the meat! We started with 3 types of meat: Azada, Chorizo & Al Pastor. A few weeks later Al Pastor went away and Barbacoa took its place. Per customer request today we have all four types of meat.

Barbacoa

An oven cooked beef that is cooked for 5 hours in adobo sauce giving it a very flavorful and juicy taste. The meat has the texture of a juicy pull meat

Azada

Azada is a thin steak style meat that has been tenderize and seasoned to give it that rich grilled flavor. This meat is grilled and chopped in small pieces.

Chorizo

This is a Mexican pork sausage marinated in mild spices (not hot). With the help of one of our new chef’s we are now making our own chorizo in house. Per customer reviews, “it’s the best chorizo in the Des Moines Metro”. It must be since we use high quality ingredients, because taste matters.

Al Pastor

A marinated pork meat in dry chilies, species & pineapple. This meat gives you a mild spice with a mild sweet taste of the pineapple. This meat is very rich in flavor.

Tacos are a traditional Mexican dish and in today’s world we have evolved the simplicity of a taco and upscale it to deferent levels. Which is why at GroVer Flavors we give our customer two tacos style; Traditional or Modern. But if a customer wants to mix up the style and make it their own, we won’t stop you. Join us every Taco Tuesday for a great bite.

People will ask where the name came from, "is it your name or nickname", "who is Grover", "is Grover here". The truth behind the name of GroVer Flavors is that it's not a person but two different places. Did you notice the upper case 'V' in the middle of the name? If you did there's your first clue.

The 'Flavors' part of the name has thrown many off. Some have come in thinking we were an ice cream shop or something within that sort. Well even though we do sell our popular GroVer's Sunday, we are not an ice cream shop, or at least not yet.

Once upon a time there were two business owners. Both are French Pastry Bakers with life experience in French pastries. Both are originally from Mexico. Now in Mexico they use a three letter abbreviation for their states. With that being said, here's the name scoop. One owner is from Guerrero (GRO) and the other is from Veracruz (VER), now put them together and we get GroVer.

GroVer's was originally opened with the idea of a modern French Pastry shop. Did you notice the whisk in our logo? A pastry shop with the addition of some modern salads and sandwiches. As you may notice today we're a lot more than just a pastry shop.

French pastries are full and rich in flavor and everyone unique. Some sweet, some rich in dark chocolate, some with fresh fruit. This is where the 'Flavors' part of the name came in.

Today we are a unique place to get a bite, as we are more than just a pastry shop. Today we have additional flavors to thrill you palate from traditional & modern American, Mexican specialties and Italian flavors. You can be certain that we will be adding even more flavors in the time to come. In the meantime you now know where our name came from and how it originated. So come join us for a flavorful Grover's treat!
