This tiny taco stand is easy to miss if you’ve just exited Interstate 45 on your way to Hobby Airport. But whether you’re coming or going, it’s worth a stop (you can catch the next flight; your grandma can get a cab). Noemi’s full menu includes classic Tex-Mex plates, tacos, and one of the best bowls of menudo in the city. For our taco tour purposes, we recommend you get the “beef” taco, filled with aggressively-seasoned (in the best possible way) ground beef in a handmade flour tortilla and topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese. 8010 Park Place Blvd, 713-645-7907. Open Mon–Sat 8 a.m.–6 p.m.
