Austin is for taco lovers—even these from California. Order this to go: It might be tempting to blow off this West Coast import, until you take a bite of these legitimately delicious tacos. Golden corn tortillas, pliable but sturdy, hold copious chunks of juicy ribeye, marinated chicken breast, or pineapple-planked pork al pastor. Vegetables get a chance to shine too, with fusion stylings like spicy gochujang-sauced cremini mushrooms tempered by a black bean puree and soft golden cauliflower given an umami crunch with a layer of griddled cheese. A cold salad of roasted corn with whipped mascarpone was a refreshing side. Pro tip: It’s not a bad idea to call to make sure your food is ready, even if you’ve ordered online.
