There’s nothing like the fresh-made tortillas at Rosita’s Al Pastor in Austin, Texas. I love watching the women in the empty bingo-hall parking lot, rounding masa in their palms into perfect spheres before plunging down the tortilla lever and throwing the flattened discs into shimmering oil. It’s magic.
At Veracruz All Natural, the migas poblanos are a heavenly kick to the face, thanks to the spice. Tacodeli specializes in gourmet, organic tacos. Upon pulling into the driveway at Valentina’s Tex-Mex BBQ, cedar smoke magnetically permeates the car before you’ve even stepped outside and onto the gravel. Here there’s a wonderful barbecue–breakfast taco mash-up involving smoked brisket that will change your life.
