Austin City Taco Co.
Inspired by Austin taquerias, this sunny, stylish upstart in the Cultural District serves tacos as delicious as they are elaborately conceived and constructed. Magdalena’s chef Juan Rodriguez moonlights here as menu engineer, creating corn-tortilla tacos like the Bohemian, packed with oak-smoked chopped brisket, guacamole, queso fresco, shredded cabbage, and a creamy serrano sauce, and the al carbon, brimming with achiote-marinated rotisserie chicken, guacamole, queso fresco, pickled carrots, and that serrano crema. Seafood options include a fluffy flour tortilla wrapped around fried shrimp with crushed salt-and-vinegar chips, while veggie possibilities include a taco with fried portobellos, pico de gallo, and queso fresco. Fried onion strings, fresh jalapeño sauce, sliced avocado, and bacon jam are among other additions. Look for that bacon jam in the three-cheese queso, laced with chiles and served with crispy french fries or tortilla chips. Cold-brew coffee figures among good sipping options.
