Thrillist invited 11 restaurants to a party for the sole purpose of
inflaming their jealousy of each other to see which one liked us most seeing what kind of crazy tacos they could invent. The Dalloway met the challenge, and came up with their spicy shrimp, corn & blueberry tacos. Here's how to make it:

1/2 tsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Sweat onion, garlic and ginger in olive oil (over medium heat) until soft, about 5mins.
2. Add blueberries, syrup, vinegars, lemon juice, chili powder and brown sugar. Stir until mixed well, let simmer until slightly thickened, about 10mins.
3.Remove from heat and puree until smooth-season to taste with salt and pepper.
