Barbacoa tacos

Expert Recommendations

"I'd send one of my all time favorite hip hop groups People Under The Stairs to La Mexicana for some tacos. These guys are from LA and the tacos there, from my experience, are more Baja style—it's just different. They have dope ass tacos for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night. It's open 24 hours! Plus, they have a bakery with fresh churros for days. It's also far enough away from the chaotic SXSW madness but close enough that you don't have to stray too far away. Editor's note: When asked where he'd send a band from this year's SXSW line-up, this is was chef Matsumoto's pick."
"These are the real deal. You are a hero in the kitchen at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar if you pick up a couple of pints of barbacoa and tortillas to share with those that may be hungover (as well as those that aren’t). They are done the right way and are extremely decadent. The bakery is open 24 hours, and that’s dangerous."
