Taqueria Chapala Jalisco
Nopal and Egg
The sprawling hacienda-style building that houses this McCullough Avenue staple is welcome upgrade from the kitschy, dilapidated former Pizza Hut where it made its name. The only thing that hasn’t changed is the menu, thankfully. The breakfast tacos are a must—droves of Beacon Hill dwellers can’t be wrong—thanks to house-made corn tortillas that are sturdy enough to support the inevitably hefty fillings. (We hate to complain about too much food, but honestly, the chilaquiles taco is all but overwhelming.) Instead, get the nopal and egg taco with charred, pickled strips of prickly pear cactus pad blended with fluffy fresh-cracked and scrambled eggs. (Insider tip: avoid the mini-tacos; sadly, those tortillas are subpar.)
1819 McCullough Ave. (210-735-5352), Open daily 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
