You can get awesome, cheap tacos anywhere in Austin, but we classed it up a bit and went to Mexican at La Condesa for our last dinner of the trip. It was a beautiful, modern and more expensive restaurant, but I loved the unique tacos I ordered (even with their price tag). This would be a great place to have a business dinner or if you have fancy friends in town.
Carnitas Taquito - The carnitas was my favorite with crispy pork shoulder, fermented black beans, tomatillo-avocado salsa crudo, baby arugula, mixed radish and queso cotija. The most classic out of all the tacos and definitely the best. (Featured above.)
El Califa Taquito - New York strip steak, crispy manchego cheese and tons of cilantro and salsa. The cheese was fried in a flat, solid rectangle which was similar to the Mediterranean cheese dish, saghanaki.
Carne Torcida Taquito - Smoked brisket pastrami, mustard vigorón, celeriac, pickled jalapeño, mustard crema, horseradish and rye tortilla. The idea was way better than the taste.
Pollo Rostizado Taquito - Rotisserie chicken, citrus rub, salsa verde and cilantro. Was not interesting enough for the price.
**Translation: Taquito = Taco.
