New: Angela's Mexican Food
A restaurant that started in a trailer at Stone Avenue and Prince Road has opened a brick-and-mortar location in Marana. Angela's Mexican Food recently opened in the former Bubby's Chicago Style spot at 9190 N. Coachline Blvd., bringing a nice selection of affordable burritos, tortas, tacos and other items to the Continental Ranch area. There seems to be a theme developing here—it's just the latest mobile restaurant to move into a building. Prices: $3 to $6. Hours: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday.
If you like good eggs from happy chickens, check out the local business Zenhens. The outfit sells eggs and high-grade fertilizer from backyard chicken flocks, and the goods are available at the Thursday farmers' market at Mercado San Agustin (100 S. Avenida del Convento), and the new Saturday farmers' market at Maynards Market and Kitchen (400 N. Toole Ave.). Head over to zenhens.net for more information, including an entertaining account of what life is like for the well-treated Zenhens.
In other chicken news, the Food Conspiracy Co-op is preparing for its annual Backyard Chicken Coop tour on Saturday, Dec. 3. The self-guided tour offers a chance to check out various kinds of inventive backyard chicken-farming operations at homes across the city, and tickets typically sell out.

Frozen Custard and Steakburgers
The frozen-custard-and-burgers formula has worked well for the two Culver's restaurants that opened locally earlier this year, and now another restaurant wants in on the action. Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers is under construction at the corner of Orange Grove and Thornydale roads, although there's no word yet on when it will open. The chain specializes in fast-food style burgers, hot dogs, chili and desserts made from frozen custard. You can get a sneak peek at freddysfrozencustard.com.
Colors Food and Spirits Reopens
LGBT bar and restaurant Colors Food and Spirits, at 5305 E. Speedway Blvd., reopened last week after a short closure. We're not sure yet if this means Honeybaked Glam, Sunday brunch and the rest of the events held there are back, but we have heard the place has a new look.
