What you're getting: Whatever you want
At weekend brunch, build your own street tacos, starting with (our rec) chunky pork carnitas. Pile on the cheese, avocado, pico de gallo, peppers, and multiple hot sauces for a fiesta en la boca. Tacos here are served on thick, nutty house-made corn tortillas.
Velvet Taco Heights
What you're getting: Cuban pig tacos
Velvet Taco, which has a cult following in Dallas with a location also in Chicago, is opening its first Houston outpost at 4819 Washington Avenue this summer. Expect a worldly, late-night menu of tricked-out tacos like crispy tikka chicken and Thai basil, or Cuban pig with Gruyere cheese, shaved ham, peppered bacon, grain mustard, and house-cured pickles on a house-made crisp flour tortilla.
