A few times a year I clamber aboard a big jet airplane and fly over to Austin to gorge on tacos and barbecue. New Orleans is the best eating city in the US but New Orleans does not do tacos or barbecue. That’s ok, Austin couldn’t make a proper kettle of gumbo or red beans and rice if life itself hung in the balance.
Joe’s Bakery does things the old-fashioned way. Their flour tortillas are the stuff of fever dreams and they’ve elevated the humble bean and cheese taco to a high level form of art.
