What: tacos (duh)
Hungry now? Everyone needs some exciting bites to eat on a boring Monday. And thank goodness for everyone’s collective love for Torchy’s Tacos, I was able to find beautiful photos of all sorts of Torchy’s tacos on Google.
I tried the tacos for the first time a few weeks ago. And that’s a big slap on the wrist to me since I’m from Austin, Texas—the birthplace of Torchy’s. Since Dallas was recently graced with this taco joint, I decided it was time to finally try out the food that every Austinite raves about.
I got the Trailer Park taco, trashy style. It was love at first bite. Loaded with fried chicken, green chilies, lettuce, pico de gallo and cheese on a flour tortilla with poblano sauce. The trashy part adds queso and takes away the lettuce (but I kept the lettuce to preserve a little bit of nutritional value). These tacos were so delicious, the queso was amazing…my mouth is drooling just thinking about them. Not the healthiest meal, but well worth it.
I also tried the fried avocado taco. It’s a hand-battered fried avocado, served with refried beans, pico, lettuce and cheese with poblano sauce. It was tasty, but I wasn’t a huge fan of getting mouths full of avocado. I love a fresh avocado, but I guess it was a bit overpowering for me.
They have a list of many more tacos to choose from—many of which I’m excited to go back and try. I also hear they have great breakfast tacos. Order the “Dirty Sanchez” if you’re not too embarrassed. It’s a breakfast taco with scrambled eggs, fried poblano chile, guac, escabeche carrots, poblano sauce and cheese. I hear it’s the best b-taco on the menu.
I’m always on the search for a delicious breakfast taco in this city…Torchy’s, I believe in you.
So for the rest of you who’ve been dying to try it or maybe haven’t even heard of it—make the trip up to Preston Road and Forest Lane. It’s Dallas’s first location, and I’m sure once people catch on, there will be many more to come.
