Attended Mando's class at Central Market North in Austin and just absolutely loved every darn taco he presented. He calls himself a taco journalist and that's exactly what he presented, the history of Mexican people how they ate at home, even mentioned that it wasn't cool early in the 1960 or so to have tacos in the lunch box....now every one loves tacos, fancy, simple or from whatever leftovers you have in the fridge. The Brussels sprouts migas were my favorite, but at home I used zucchini, stale corn chips from HEB, eggs and Mexican cheese....all done in a pan with a little butter.....fantastic....

Oh, the books is already a must have here in Austin....love it

This book was everything I expected and more. I expected recipes from the people making Austin's best breakfast tacos. And those are in here - everything from the tiny food trucks to the big restaurants. What I didn't expect but was thrilled to discover was that they also included the stories behind all those places. The stories describing how they started making and selling breakfast tacos in Austin are what makes this book much more than just a cook book with beautiful pictures. This is a great history of Central Texas as told through the people making and eating breakfast tacos.

Great recipes and history of Austin, TX. Very good information and breakfast taco ideas.
Enjoyed the book. I haven't made every recipe, but the ones I have, have been wonderful.
I've made my own flour and corn tortillas too. And you can't get a better tortilla than a homemade one.
Try it, it's fun!

I and everyone I gave this book to for Christmas presents really enjoy the recipes and the history between Austin and Tex-Mex. The stories with each person and their favorite breakfast tacos gives great recipes and the reason breakfast tacos are so big in Austin,
