A Trompo Taco with Benefits

fox1by Steven Doyle

There are times when I feel this national taco obsession might be a bit out of control. It is just then that happenstance smacks me in the grill with a killer version of the street meat. This was the case yesterday as I meandered down Harry Hines.

There is actually no excuse to be on Harry Hines unless you are looking for a good price on a dozen cheap sunglasses, a used tire on the DL, or trying to make your way from north to south very quickly. Or if you are in need of a taco. The latter was the case yesterday and I found a nice one at this bizarre gas station that is really just a front for a lavenderia.   Continue reading

Celebrate This Taco Holiday With Trompo Tacos

If you have read craveDFW for any length of time, you know we adore our tacos. We create an annual taco list and one of the highlights is usually the gas station trompo taco across from Bachman Lake off Northwest Highway. Some years ago I was sharing taco secrets with Chef Kent Rathbun, and he claimed this to be his most favorite taqueria in Dallas.  I pretty much agreed. These are amazing little tacos of grilled meat sliced off a trompo, which is Spanish for ‘spinning top’.

How this all works is that pork is marinated over one or two days in a combination of dried chiles and then slowly cooked with a gas flame on a vertical rotisserie called the trompo. Perched on top of the trompo of meat is generally a whole pineapple that drizzles its juices downward, further breaking down the meat with flavor and enzymes to make it even more tender.  Continue reading

Mia Enriquez is one happy gal and she makes what most consider the best brisket tacos in Dallas at her namesake restaurant, Mia’s Tex Mex located on Lemmon Avenue in Dallas. What she also makes is one hell of a great brisket enchilada. When visiting Dallas most tourists make a beeline to Mia’s and join the locals as we sup on amazing Tex-Mex.

Other crave favorites include pinto bean soup, tamales, and beef chile rellenos. The rellenos are particularly delicious and top as some of our very favorite in the Dallas area.  Continue reading
