Oh boy. Our short two-day trip to Austin was without a mission. Duc needed tacos, and he needed to see how Austin did it. We learned quickly that the area was big on breakfast tacos so had to seek a spot that could make them well without all of the hooplah that comes with over-romanticizing the comfort food. It was authenticity we sought, and it was lines that we did not want to tackle. After some preliminary research, I settled on hitting up Papalote Taco House for its accolades and good reviews both for the breakfast and non-breakfast tacos. Our choice was confirmed once my cousins living in Austin told us they go there on weekends to sate their breakfast tacos needs. The moment we took our first bites as well, we were convinced we made the right, delicious choice.
