I veer from my gluten-free recipe testing to bring you a review of the best corn tortillas in town. Yes. That’s what I said. The best corn tortillas in Austin (I’m open to suggestions) are at La Cocina de Consuela. Consuela serves them herself.
After a very relaxing yoga session this morning, my friend Ari and I headed over to Consuela’s. I’ve been there once for breakfast and now once for lunch. They are not open on Saturdays (Ari suggests this is because they are in fact Jewish and closed for shabbat) but what a delightful Sunday brunch they make. I must say I prefer the breakfast to the lunch, as they have the most wonderful corn tortillas, eggs, and so many options. I had turkey bacon, egg, potato (freshly cooked, not fried and refried- not saying there’s anything wrong with that!) last week and holy moly it was fantastic. Today’s lunch hit the post-yoga spot with tortilla soup and a taco. Yum. And that boys and girls, is my review of breakfast in Austin today.
