American singer-songwriter, David Dondero, is reporting in his meals from his current tour. He’s living my dream of playing music and eating on the road. Here’s Dave at Izzoz Tacos in Austin, Texas.
Austin, TX is one of my favorite towns on this planet to eat. Breakfast tacos are very popular and can be found pretty much anywhere around the city. In the past several years the food trailer trend has taken off like so many other places around the country. On South 1st, my favorite trailer had recently moved to a new location. They always blast terrible alternative modern rock like Puddle of Mud or some other similar shit. They have the best tacos though so it’s worth suffering through their horrible musical taste. Even better than Torchies.
They have a taco called the Bac Spin. It’s scrambled eggs, bacon bits and spinach on a flour tortilla. Their salsa is really distinctive with a more smokey flavor. The price is cheap. One taco fills me up for $2.25. Their queso is also great. That’s only if i’m really hungry.
I ordered the bac spin again and sat underneath a shade tree in the 105 degree heat. This time i ordered 2 of them and was only able to finish 1 and a half. I like Topo Chico sparkling Mexican mineral water to wash it down. A nice way to start the day. I wait at least 30 minutes before diving into Barton Springs.
