Taco Internet: Kosher Tacos, Austin and Portland


Welcome back to the weekly roundup on The Taco Trail. This week, José visited Joe’s Bakery & Coffee Shop, serving the best breakfast tacos in Austin. Nick spent some time at Los Alambres in Portland and shared the good news coming out of the lonchera: tacos de canasta on Fridays, beginning today.

Back in Texas, CultureMap Dallas shares news about the Taco Dog, a crispy taco inside a hotdog bun available now at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The North Texas Taco Festival folks continue to release their loteria card series in the run up to TacoCon (Cerveza) at Four Corners Brewing Co., Friday, Sept. 6. And then there are the taco-related headlines from across the country, including a kosher taco truck along the border.
