Maria's Montrose Tacos
In Houston, the hotlands are also getting famous for tacos, thanks to Maria Samano and her flirtatious crew at Tacos Tierra Caliente. Her extremely popular taco trailer is parked in the 1300 block of Montrose Boulevard in the "We Fix Flats" parking lot. (Look for the 99� taco sign.) I tried two barbacoa tacos ($1.50 each) with onions and cilantro on top and they were outstanding. Ask Maria for the "salsita" and she'll hand you a squirt bottle full of her creamy green "hotlands hot sauce." Yow! -- Robb Walsh
