Breakfast Tacos at Rosie’s Tamale House in Bee Cave, Texas
The thrill of eating tacos for breakfast is similar to that of eating waffles for dinner: slightly rebellious and definitely not to be allowed all the time, but a good way to change things up. At the roadside stand Rosie's Tamale House in Bee Cave, Texas (near Austin), floury tortillas wrap up cheesy eggs, bacon pieces and fluffy potato slices—that's the trademark breakfast taco order.
Of course my eyes gravitated to the "Suicide Taco" which includes all of the above, plus chorizo. With contents overflowing, this one can barely fold into the typical taco posture, leaving you a second course of leftover innards. Breakfast tacos are only available here between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m., after which you will be restricted to regular tacos.
