One of the few restaurants in town that tackles both Mexican and Tex Mex out of the same kitchen. When we lived in south Austin, Azul Tequila was one of our favorite spots to get a big bowl of tortilla soup washed down with a molten plate of queso fundido cradled with deep swathes of deliciously greasy chorizo sausage.
Back then they fried the totopos per order but somewhere along the way they decided to just start sandbagging them. No matter. A recent visit found the kitchen to still be in good form with a particularly nice rendition of that soup we so fondly recalled.
