With multiple locations in Austin, Dallas, and Houson in store fronts and food carts, Torchy's Tacos came highly recommended. The fried avocado taco with either a flour or corn tortilla (I chose corn) was good, but did not live up to the hype. The crunch of the fried batter surrounding the avocado obscured the fresh avocado taste, and I was disappointed in what appeared to be bagged shredded cheese. A decent taco for sure, just nothing to get worked up over.
Izzoz Tacos (no picture) from a trailer just down the street (Austin is flooded with food trailer parks) was much better than Torchy's.
Lick Ice Creams is worth the hype! Inventive flavors, like beet-mint and blackberry-lemon-basil, churned from organic milk and local ingredients put Lick on par with Philly's Capogiro. The scoop of salted caramel and scoop of goat cheese-honey-thyme was fabulous.
