How to eat tacos for every meal in Houston.
I have no idea how this post idea popped into my head, but last Friday I set out on a mission to eat tacos for every meal.
First up was a place I had been wanting to try: La Guadalupana. I hear this hole-in-the-wall place gets crazy crowded for weekend brunch, but on a Friday morning it was just like I like my restaurants…empty with no line.
I went with two breakfast tacos:
1) taco especial – eggs, potatoes, chorizo, chile, onion (not the biggest chorizo fan, but I really liked it in this!)
2) taco homestyle – eggs, sausage, potatoes (LOVED this one.)
I wanted an iced latte (because I am me), but they didn’t have one on the menu. So I ordered a glass of their horchata and a mug of coffee and tried to make my own iced latte. Yeahhhh didn’t really turn out so great.
I so want to go back to Guadalupana soon to try their chilaquiles. I hear they’re legit.
Later that day I met my little sister at Laredo Taqueria for taco outing numero dos. I had also heard good things about this place. There was a line for this one AND it was like 96+ degrees out. We were melting a bit. Once we got inside I was sure we would be better, but the AC inside was a bit non-existent. If I went back here for tacos I would either get them to-go or wait until a cooler time of year.
I went with the beef fajita taco, which was just beef + refried beans. So simple. So great. I also got a sweet chicken taco, which was chicken tossed in a sweet tomato mole sauce + refried beans. I got both on flour tortillas. The tortillas were doughy and fresh.
The final taco adventure of the day was to Tacos-a-Go-Go. I’m not a very complex person when it comes to food. I just want simple delicious food that isn’t expensive. I think that’s why tacos appeal to me. Anyways…taco place #3.
I love this place! They are opening a new location closer to our house and I’m pumped about it.
Here I got a frozen margarita, which everybody knows is the ideal pairing for tacos. Wine goes with cheese. Margaritas go with tacos. That is just how the world works.
I got my tacos “puffy”, which I think just means they deep fry the shell until crispy. So delish. I got a shrimp taco and a chicken taco. Both had guacamole or avocado, such an essential taco component.
I hope you enjoyed this taco adventure. I’d love to hear about the best taco places in your town!
