Rajas y Hongos Taco (Papalote, Austin)

Where It's From: Papalote, 2803 S. Lamar Blvd., Austin, 512-804-2474

Why It's a Standout: When diehard carnivores eat vegetarian tacos, you know a restaurant is onto something good. That's what happens at this tiny, unassuming strip-mall taco house, which balances bright and healthy flavors on its overmatched tortillas – and does so with particular triumph in the rajas y hongos, an ample assembly of roasted poblano peppers, zucchini, sautéed mushrooms, cabbage, and queso fresco in some kind of addictive cream sauce.
