The slogan here is “Tacos, Tequila, y Todo.” And we’ll take all three at this new Mexican/Middle Eastern joint from the folks at La Fisheria. It may even become our taco go-to. Inside a brightly painted building at the foot of Westheimer, the kitchen cooks up fusion fare like Mexican hummus, lamb kebabs, and chicken shawarma tacos, as well as more traditional offerings and excellent cocktails. Order this to go: There was nary a loser in our choices, selected from a menu of elaborately constructed tacos and machetes (long corn-tortilla quesadillas). Fillings range from smoky birria and Baja-style fried fish with chipotle mayo to tart and nuanced chicken shawarma and shrimp diabla, laden with fried leeks. We also finished happily, dipping hot, sugary churros in cajeta and chocolate. Pro tip: There‘s no curbside delivery, and you’ll want to allow for a little wait time (fifteen minutes for us).
