Torchy’s Tacos

For breakfast on February 4th, Tammy, Jenny, and I went to:

Torchy’s Tacos
1311 South 1st Street
Austin, TX 78704
(512) 366-0537

Their menu is pretty straightforward. Everything’s written on there and it looks as though a chalkboard kind of menu. I loved it!

I ordered two tacos!! It looks gross on here though. /:

The first taco I got was Jalapeno Sausage Egg and Cheese on a Flour Tortilla | $2. They had a lot of ingredients stuffed in there. So delicious!

The second taco I got was The Democrat [shredded beef barbacoa topped with fresh avocado, queso fresco, cilantro, onions, & a wedge of lime] | $3.75. I got mine on Corn Tortilla. It came with two of the tortilla whereas Tammy and Jenny got theirs on flour and it only came with one. This was definitely worth it. I was already full and in the end, it seemed like I got three tacos instead of two.

This is the Tomatillo Sauce that came with The Democrat. They gave me two of these little things. I felt there was not enough of this sauce but it was all good. The taco was so good that it didn’t even need sauce!

I really want to go here again and again. Thank goodness they have so many locations!

Alamo Cafe

The reason I came back to college a day early is because I had to go pick up Jenny from the airport. Travis and A.V. went with me because we had decided to go to eat afterward. The place we chose was:

Alamo Cafe
10060 IH-10 West

San Antonio, TX 78230
(210) 691-8827

This type of food is Tex-Mex. They gave free chips and tortillas. The tortillas are AMAZING! They are homemade. Fluffy and soft and oh so wonderful in my mouth! They give you butter to slatter on it but I ate mine plain.

I ordered the Fajita Dinner [2 soft tacos, choice of beef, chicken, or mixed, rice, beans, guacamole, and pico de gallo] | ~$10. I got the mixture. One was beef. The other was chicken. The beef was like any other beef but the chicken, oh the chicken! It was delicious. So juicy and soft. I would get only chicken next time for sure. It’s a good place to try if you want some tex-mex. I’d suggest it!
