The new Veracruz Tacos location officially opens on October 7 — from food truck to brick and mortar, Veracruz has claimed their place in Austin and they deserve all the wins! Veracruz prides themselves on creating a culture of kindness and authenticity, their slogan “hecho a mano, con amor” translates to “made by hand, with love.”
I was fortunate enough to attend their Soft Opening and try some of my favorite menu items…
When you first walk in, you will see a neon “COFFEE” sign located to your left, this is where you will find Machine Head Coffee, a local coffee shop owned by Nolan Green. Nolan is no stranger to coffee, he has shared his knowledge with Radio Coffee and Beer, Caffe Medici and Thunderbird Coffee. Machine Head Coffee humbles themselves on quality drinks and kindness. Try the Guji Coffee!
If you’ve been to Veracruz, chances are you’ve had their famous Migas Originales Taco, which contains eggs, tortilla chips, Monterey Jack cheese, cilantro, tomato, onion and – the best fat there is – avocado. Mmmm! And if you have not been to Veracruz, or have never had their migas taco, consider this a sign from above. You won’t regret it! I also had two of their Picadas, one Picada Ranchera and one Picada Aguacate. Each picada contains a soft, cecina steak, queso fresco and onion.
I am really proud of Veracruz for how far they have come since 2008, and if you’re a supporter of local businesses, make sure to come by on October 7 to taste all of the authentic, Mexican goodness.
So come for the tacos, come for the coffee, come for the agua frescas and come for the chips and queso! See ya there!
