Flores Meat Market & Restaurant
Colitas de Pavo
As a general rule, Mexican meat markets, or carnicerias, are ideal spots for happy taco hunting. In that regard, Flores Meat Market, a restaurant/butcher/supermarket/tortilla multiplex, does not disappoint. Here, the taco options are many and include a discada of chile-soaked chicken, ham and pork, a tripitas as well as a carnitas—all typical of the city’s taco scene. Skip those. Instead, put in an order for a platter of copper-colored taco de colitas de pavo (fried turkey tails), a rarity in the Lone Star State. Crunchy but not zapped of moisture and brightened by the workhorse trinity of lime, cilantro, and onion, a plate of colitis de pavo makes an ideal choice for those looking to stretch their taco wings.
