Taco Ticker: Julia Child, Hangovers and Xoconostle

After taking last week off to let the big news about Dallas’ first bona fide taco festival sink in, Taco Ticker is back with a roundup of this week’s taco news. On the Taco Trail, I reviewed rare—for Dallas—tacos al vapor, steamed tacos hawked by myriad street-side taqueros in Mexico. Veletta Forsythe Lill, the outgoing executive director of the Dallas Arts District and driving force behind the success of food trucks in town, took time to answer taco-related questions. Finally, the week’s second review hit up Mi Fondita, a new restaurant owned and operated by natives of Michoacán state, Mexico. Yes, regional specialties are available. And, yes, it’s worth multiple visits.

Elsewhere, on the Taco Internet, we follow in Julia Child’s footsteps, put the entire Tacodeli to the test and oh so much more:

Jeana Johnson and Colleen O’Hare of Acme F&B Talk Gas Station Kitchens, Pyles’ Charisma — City of Ate

Boyle Heights Taco Tour: Mariscos Jalisco, Santa Rita Jalisco + Guisados — The Lotusland Chronicles

Stay tuned next week for a sports bar’s best-selling fish tacos and thoughts on a the goods from a local taco truck.
