Austin is definitely known for it's breakfast tacos, from a straight up bean and cheese to potato and eggs to a classic migas taco. And now the world may know a little more about why we love our breakfast tacos! A couple of months ago, I had the tough job of representing the Taco Journalism Mafia in an interview with John T. Edge who writes the United Tastes column in the New York Times. Yeah, the NYT! The story tried to crack the Texan/Mexicanism of the breakfast taco. Did he succeed? You be the judge. Check out the story and our little quote...IN THE NEW YORK TIMES!!! YES, I'M YELLING WITH EXCITEMENT!!!
