Ace of spades at Torchy’s Tacos

Torchy’s Tacos is coming soon to Casa Linda Plaza. The “ace of spades” is taco-of-the-month once a year, but it’s available all the time. And it’s a whopper: a flour tortilla stuffed with jalapeño sausage, smoked brisket, a fried egg, cheese, green chili peppers, cilantro, queso fresco, sour cream and Torchy’s signature Diablo hot sauce.

Bob Armstrong dip at Mattito’s

Named and created for the Texas land commissioner who frequented Matt’s El Rancho in Austin, Bob Armstrong dip has become legendary — so much so that the owners of the restaurant’s sibling, Mattito’s, don’t need to put it on the menu. Ask, and you shall receive a heaping bowl of ground beef, guacamole, sour cream and queso layered together for optimum dipping.

Green curry at Asian Mint

At a place known for Asian fusion, it’s nice to curl up with something pure such as the green curry at Asian Mint. It’s a more traditional Thai curry compared to red or yellow, served with Thai eggplant and white Jasmine rice. It’s offered as a special some days, but you can order it any time.
