Upmarket grocery (think artisan salsas, funky Asian shrimp chips and earth-friendly toilet paper), cafe and beer bar Delicious opened at 1100 S. Lamar Blvd. in the southeast corner of the Lamar Union complex. The menu at the grocery owned by Raj Singh (Live Oak Market) is helmed by Tyler Johnson, who helped open Bacon. Delicious serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with breakfast tacos in the morning and day and evening eats like green chorizo corndog bites and a selection of sandwiches like pastrami, fancy grilled cheese and grilled fish. Delicious also features about 20 beers, including many local names, on tap. It opens at 9 a.m. daily, closing at midnight Thursday-Saturday.
