Churros lovers, this is your spot! If you come for nothing else, they are worth your time and money. A plate-sized coil of fresh-fried dough—fluffy and steamy inside, delicately crunchy with cinnamon sugar outside—is served with cajeta or Mexican chocolate. Another must-have: costra tacos. The filling consists of your choice of chunky meat (we liked the pork rib) on house-made heirloom corn tortillas with a griddled cheese crust on the outside. Addicting! Alambres (skewers) come with a platterful of wood-grilled meat (we chose sirloin steak), bacon, poblano peppers, and tortillas for make-your-own tacos. The portion was enough for two. Likewise noteworthy, the humble but sumptuously rich tripa street taco features meltingly tender, crispy-edged tripas (chitterlings). We ordered tortilla soup to go and enjoyed the complex, mole-like soup for dinner; it comes complete with add-ins like avocado, tortilla strips, and queso fresco. Located in Houston’s Farmer’s Market, this family-friendly taqueria and cantina makes a fun afternoon excursion, especially if you keep three things in mind: You order at the bar (it’s not obvious); you need to be patient (the service can be unpredictably paced); and the place closes at 6 p.m.
