Arabicos Taquito (La Condesa, Austin)
Where It's From: La Condesa, 400A W. 2nd St., Austin
Why It's a Standout: Seared venison? Chipotle harissa? Fennel pollen yogurt? All together? La Condesa's James Beard-approved play on the foods of Mexico City may sound suspect to purists, but this taquito, with thick slices of venison laid on pickled cucumbers and sprinkled with cilantro, is pure genius. The harissa heats you up, the yogurt cools you off, and a plush tortilla cooked with rendered bacon fat just makes you happy.
