As someone who has lived Downtown for half a decade, we can quietly contend this area can never have too many grill options. Some of a best Mexican food in a city is located in this area, though a shorter a stretch we have to transport to get tacos, a better. At slightest that was my mind-set as we headed to Tacos Huevos, a new fast-casual judgment combined by Chris Pike.
Don’t worry, this is really not a yoga-instructor-visits-Mexico-once-and-opens-a-fruteria situation. Chef Juan Basini has worked with Pike for 15 years during Pike’s former Hermosa Beach restaurant, Sangria. Since creation a pierce to Las Vegas and opening Tacos Huevos in August, a twin have managed to move a graphic judgment to Downtown’s colourful food scene, consistent a quick-serve judgment of (dare we contend it?) Chipotle with homemade recipes and additional touches that put a renouned burrito sequence to shame.
Huevos means “eggs,” and Tacos Huevos was founded on a pleasing thought that breakfast should be served during all times, day or night. Filling breakfast plates—two eggs over easy or scrambled with cheese, potatoes and bacon or sausage—are served all day, and burritos, bowls, tacos, tostadas and salads can also be upgraded with an egg on top.
Whatever vessel we select comes with protein options like rotisserie duck ($7), delayed baked pig ($8), prosaic iron beef ($8), bacon, sausage or chorizo ($8), vegan duck or beef ($8) or a good ol’ bean and cheese combo ($6). Add-ons embody a sour mix of cheeses melted on ask (do it), abounding and tawny black beans, boiled or Spanish rice and more. Load adult on a homemade salsas, too, that embody a corpulent amiable tomato, a middle immature tomatillo and cilantro and an eat-at-your-own-risk sharp red done with chile de árbol.
There’s a lot to like during Tacos Huevos—it’s fast, available and fresh, and a burrito or play could simply double as lunch and dinner. Or in this case, breakfast.
