onetaco: an urban taqueria​

As one of Austin’s basic food groups, there’s always room for one (or four) more taco joints in the neighborhood. OneTaco, an Austin-based tortilla topper, brings homemade flour and corn tortillas, a variety of fillings, and a snappy 50s-south-of-the-border vibe to Anderson Lane, its second location in town. I’ve tried their chicken taco (yum!) and el pastor (OK, but I’ve been spoiled by the richer-than-Bill-Gates al pastors at El Mercado). Perhaps the stars of the show at OneTaco are the tortas: messy layers of taco fillings splayed between two puffy sammich buns. Plus, mega bonus points for spinning my favorite Royksopp track during my second visit: Silicon Soul’s Hypno House Dub of Royksopp’s Poor Leno/There is a Light That Never Goes Out (A Capella). Yummy to the tummy and the ears!
