Torchy’s Tacos ~ South Austin


Two words: Dirty Sanchez…Holy CRAP this is a good taco! Who would have thought that the tangy crunch of escabeche combined with fried (that’s right, fried) poblano peppers, could transform an ordinary breakfast taco into something soooo…yo no se. Perfecto? …the taco geniuses at Torchy’s that’s who. These two ingredients, perfectly rolled up in a flour – or corn – tortilla with some scrambled egg, avocado, and a sprinkle of cheese are enough to make your tastebuds do somersaults and the hair stand up on the back of your neck for just long enough.


It is served with their exclusive poblano ranch which may be the right paring for some other taco somewhere, but my advice is to have your Dirty Sanchez naked. And by that I mean no sauce…or if you must then go with the green salsa. These treats go for $3.50 a taco and trust me it’s worth it. You will be telling everyone about the Dirty Sanchez you had for breakfast.
