Episode 3 : Amber Amos
Amber Amos is the owner and chef of Westside Taco Co. Her carnitas tacos took 2nd place at the LA Weekly’s Tacolandia and was voted 3rd best restaurant in Bend just months after opening up shop Oregon and not even being located in Bend! When not creating ridiculously delicious tacos such as the Blueberry Brisket Tacos, she’s a great mom of two boys and spending as much time outside in Central Oregon’s nature as possible. On this episode she share the journey that took her from working at a ski lift in June Mountain to working at the Oscars with Wolfgang Puck to opening up West Side Taco Co. She also shares how she makes it through the tough times in life and why showing her sons what bravery looks like is what matters most.
