Let’s begin with a trip to tacoland. Pablito’s Bakery @ Bluff Bend and Braker is par none. Everything I have had there is divine. (They could use some help with their coffee-making skills, but….) Gorditas, quesadillas, tacos, tortas, everything! Very fresh and flavorful and most importantly, affordable. Pablito’s is better than La Mexicana (my former fave Mexican bakery) and the service is delightful. A friend of mine from S. Austin ordered tamales over the holidays and the owner drove them to her…it had to have taken him at least an hour! Now that is good service! Amigo and I got our wedding cake there as well. A traditional Tres Leches and it was simply perfect. No Joke! Be forewarned, though – the aqua fresca is too sweet!
There are a few small tables outside on the front porch, so bring your pooch!
