Words by Sabrina Barekzai:Just across the street from The Byrd Theater sits the newly opened Don’t Look Back. The brainchild of New York Deli co-owner Hamooda Shami and Nate Gutierrez of Nate’s Taco Truck fame, this is Richmond’s new taco hotspot. Don’t Look Back (which takes it’s name from a Belle & Sebastian song), marks Nate’s return to taco-slinging after closing up his Truck Stop last year.


The menu of this laid-back taco bar boasts most of same mouthwatering selections from Nate’s cart, like the TVP tacos. Taquitos and tostadas are relatively new to the menu and all done a la Nate, so they’re guaranteed to be delicious! We opted for a black bean taco done “traditional” (cilantro, lime and onion) and done “gringo” (salsa, lettuce, sour cream, cheese) as well as taquito and tostada (yeah, we were hungry!).



It was fantastic to once again enjoy Nate’s tacos on a weekday afternoon! Don’t Look Back is located at 2929 W. Cary St and currently only open for lunch hours, check their Facebook page for more details.

Luarca, Asturias. We stopped just briefly in this little fishing town on our way back to Galicia. It was very charming and beautiful, though once again, my pictures don’t do it justice! 

Gijón, Asturias. Again, we didn’t have much time to see the city, and it was pouring for the first half of the visit, but I really liked the historical district, and, of course, the beach! (And look, Mom! I made friends!)

Santa María de Naranco, a pre-Romanesque church near Oviedo. We rushed through here and I didn’t get many details about it, but apparently it is one of the most recognizable symbols of Asturias.

The beautiful Picos de Europa. This was the highlight of the trip for me. We weren’t sure if we’d be able to go because the forecast called for snow and fog, which would have made driving up the mountains in our bus impossible. Luckily, it was sunny when we started to make our way up. Of course, by the time we got off the bus, it was snowing, and when we reached the first of the two lakes, the snow and wind were so intense that we couldn’t see a thing. We made our way back to the bus to take refuge and wait until it was safe to drive back down… and of course, as soon as we got on the bus, the snow subsided and the sun came out. We jumped on the opportunity to quickly see the first lake, climb up the path to where we could see the second one, thank our lucky stars, and dash back to the bus before it could start snowing on us again! In short, I’m very glad that despite some initial signs of protest, the weather decided to let us see the Picos de Europa, as it is really one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.

Cangas de Onís, Asturias. We stopped in this cute little pueblo on our way to the Picos de Europa mountain range. The town was small, yet bustling with a big market in the main plaza, whose buildings were painted with funky colors and patterns. I wish we could have spent more time there!
