The Peached Tortilla’s Brick and Mortar Now Open With Banh Mi Tacos and Plenty of Booze

i used to go to the one at burnet and mopac. but they just opened one by my house on burnet further south.

but i've never had a bad experience at lamar either. Perhaps i am easily pleased. it is a taco stand after all.

but they regularly come and check on me at least 2x while i'm eating.

also, they just switched to new corn chips. gmo free blah blah but they are light and crispy and addictive. i'm a fan.

The Peached Tortilla’s Brick and Mortar Now Open With Banh Mi Tacos and Plenty of Booze

i'd put the pork mole, akuishi picadillo, hanger steak, papa dulce, conchinita, relleno, deli beli, scallop or cowboy tacos against just about any place in town. they also have wheat tortillas, which is nice. and their queso and dona sauces beat 90% of the places in town. And you will never beat their customer service.

I've eaten at peached tortilla's trailer a dozen times. It is fine. but sometimes i don't need tomato jam and sliders.

Barley swine

i'm not at liberty to say, but another exciting place is going in next door to barley swine as well.

the tacos aren't bad. I think it functions better as a bar than a traditional restaurant. though the drink snob in me wishes for better ice if they are going to have fancy drinks.

Bahn Mi at Dang

i tried the banh mi at NG BMT in the back of the Market by the ramen place today. 5 bucks for a chicken w/pate on bread they bake in shop.

It was top 3 worthy to me.

M. Odom's take on Dai Due

I've been going about once a week since they opened. The daytime menu has some real winners. The night menu rotates regularly and I've had very few misses.

The patty melt, american breakfast and pastrami sandwich have been lunchtime go-to items for me.

Pecan Shelling

had seen that one on google. was hoping for something in town.

Pecan Shelling

Somehow managed to harvest well over 30lbs of pecans in shell this year from the backyard. I can't/won't shell them all individually. I'd love to get them out of the shell and freeze them. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Is there a place in town to shell them (not just crack)? Is there a good cause that uses them for something?

Not looking for recipes, just logistical advice. Thanks!

Fork and Taco

I'm personally offended by the fancy taco trend on burnet road. I'm a big tacodeli fan but that's about as expensive as i'll get for meat on a tortilla.

that said, I've heard some good things about taco flats. but i just haven't been able to get motivated to get there yet.

Best Reasonably Priced Mexican food?

Less exotic but pretty darn good TexMex would be La Cocina de Consuelo on Burnet Road. Good queso too.

Sad Day...

they are reporting that it will reopen in january on the east side somewhere.

that place could have used a good cleaning, but it did the job.

Time to Line Up for Franklin BBQ?

9 am probably will do it. you can see the line history a bit here: https://twitter.com/FranklinBBQline

i'd still encourage you to try one of the other top 5 places for sanity's sake. would save you a couple of hours of your life.

the new Lil' Woodrows on Burnet is allegedly open according to a friend who drove by. Also, someone on my neighborhood Nextdoor.com reported Suzi's was re-opened on Burnet.

Troy?

Saw this place opened in the spot that ms. b's was in years ago. Mesa and Spicewood. Walked in while the pump was running to check it out. Turkish dudes running the joint. Menu was Doners, Kebabs etc..

the food coming out of the kitchen looked good. a quick yelp query returned positive results...but you know how those yelpers are.

i have a free lunch hour tomorrow so hopefully i can report back.

Holy Latkes !!

K&Z were/are supposed to be opening downtown somewhere in one of the new buildings. i don't have any more info than that and it was just a rumor about a year ago.

Biryani Pot-any recent catering reviews?

it's on the appetizer menu. Spicy morsels of flash fried chicken. It makes for an odd appetizer in a traditional sense, but i have them bring it out with my meal.

Bahn Mi at Dang

perhaps it was knowing that legit and cheaper banh mi was a mile away or it was the tomatoes and lack of pickled veggies, but i just didn't care for it.
