Sweet potato tacos
Chef Shack Ranch (address and info)
Mashed sweet potatoes topped with black beans, cheese, and pickled onions have never, EVER tasted so incredibly good.
Sonora Grill (address and info)
These are everything eggplant should be. They’re incredibly crispy and when you bite into them, they're sweet, yet earthy and floral on the inside. Oh, and they pair well with any of Sonora’s tacos, particularly the red tempura shrimp ones!
Picadillo a la Cubano
Victor’s 1959 Café (address and info)
We’re well aware that most people hit up Victor’s for breakfast, but this Cuban-inspired ragout consisting of ground beef, potatoes, capers, raisins, and Spanish green olives, all simmered in the homemade Creole sauce, will make you want to stay ‘til dinner.
