Taco Tuesday: Banh Mi at Tacodeli

By Megan Giller
February 18, 2014

Even though tacos are Austin’s official breakfast food, occasionally we also eat them for lunch and dinner. In times like those, this hefty Vietnamese-inspired taco from Tacodeli hits the spot. The beloved restaurant marinates pork shoulder in a green chili tomatillo sweet-and-sour sauce, then grills it and pairs it with carrot-and-daikon escabeche, cilantro and basil.

And in case you were wondering, the restaurant's doña sauce goes with everything, including this Asian-fusion treat. The taco is a special on the menu, not a permanent fixture, so get it while it’s hot.
