Thousand Oaks Café
The Northeast side of San Antonio has three locations of this Sunday morning favorite. Opened by El Salvadoran Ana Lizama, who learned to cook Tex-Mex before she mastered her own country’s cuisine, Thousand Oaks draws eaters with its array of breakfast tacos. Though not technically on the taco portion of the menu, the chilaquiles con chorizo taco was a recent favorite. Similar to the chilaquiles verdes, and packed with crisp tortilla strips, shredded mozzarella, and pico de gallo, the taco is a stand-out, thanks to nicely crumbled, nongreasy chorizo. Though the chilaquiles can get a bit soupy, the wallop of flavors makes up for the extra napkins you’ll need.
4334 Thousand Oaks Drive, (210-653-8058), Open Mon-Sat 6 a.m.-3 p.m., Sun 7 a.m.-2 p.m.
