Last Thursday this time Slip and I had arrived in Austin, TX and headed to Takoba with my dear friend Amelia to begin the serious chowdown that occurred throughout the long weekend in TX. What a great decision! To be greeted by 70 degree breezes, mango habanero margaritas, and fresh guacamole sounds wonderful to me.
If you’re in Austin (lucky you!) definitely head here for the margaritas and chips and salsa alone— they are all three divine. The chips are super thick and crispy and salty, essential to fine dipping in fresh avocado.
Between the 3 of us we got 3 kinds of tacos— two versions of their pork tacos and I ordered the tacos de pescado. Slip’s came with cactus on the plate!
(See the cactus? Back right. It was lovely!)
Mine came with a delicious, spicy green salsa, that gave these tacos a nice kick.
All these tacos had bold flavors with a clean finish. If I lived in or was traveling to Austin I’d definitely head to Takoba for an afternoon drink and dine, and I heard their Happy Hours are great! Inspired by these ones I actually made my own tacos de pescado this week, which were also really tasty— recipe to follow.
Happy St. Patty’s Day!
