Laredo Cavalcade

If you like the tacos at Laredo Taqueria on Washington, wait until you try the tacos at Laredo Taqueria on Cavalcade.

My friend Jay Francis met me there for breakfast the other day. I was blown away by a chile verde breakfast taco made with scrambled eggs and roasted green chiles. I also loved the tart, crunchy nopales and scrambled egg taco. The chorizo and egg taco wasn't quite as impressive.

Francis insists that the hot sauces at the Cavalcade location are hotter than the salsas served at the other two Laredo Taquerias. He poured a large puddle of the green sauce into a picadillo taco and set it in front of me to prove his point. I dutifully ate the whole thing and winced in delicious pain.

I love the atmosphere of the Laredo on Patton and I like the convenience of Laredo on Washington. But the calabacita taco, the cabrito ranchero taco and the chile verde taco I ate at the Laredo Taqueria on Cavalcade were outrageously good. Go try them for yourself.

Best of all, Joe Soto's sensational and inexpensive tacos come without any of the silly "authentic Mexican" claims that other trendy joints serve up with their Tex-Mex nachos and frozen margaritas.

"I call it Tejano food," he says.
