My favorite authentic Austin taco joint is Mellizoz, a quirky food truck hidden behind the Gourdough’s trailer. Fun fact: Mellizoz is also Austin Mayor Steve Adler’s favorite place to pick up a breakfast taco! Tony, the owner’s son told me that they decided on the name, which translates to “twins” in Spanish, because twins run in the family.of My “usual” is the Padre, a pork taco with a sweet helping of sauteed pineapple. This time I went for the fan favorite, though: the fried avocado taco. With its tempura battered avocado, cotija cheese, and chipotle sherry vinaigrette, this taco will hit both your sweet and savory cravings. Try it on a corn tortilla for better taco infrastructure!
