Downtown food hall Conservatory just grew with the arrival of La Taquiza, a new destination for traditional Mexican street foods.
The menu is filled out by tacos inspired by those sold by street vendors in Mexico City, caramel-covered churros, Mexican street corn, and queso fundido. Other authentic orders include tacos de comal and torta de Milanesa. For a grand opening party scheduled for Tuesday, December 10, the whole menu is half-off, with $6 margaritas (frozen/rocks) in the beer garden. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The existing cluster of Conservatory vendors include a pizzeria, a chicken joint, pho, and a wine bar. La Taquiza replaces El Burro & The Bull BBQ. After closing earlier this year, El Burro & The Bull is, according to the Houston Chronicle, in the process of relocating to a standalone space at 5401 Harrisburg.
Houston’s buzzy food hall scene continues to ramp up as of late. Politan Row Houston welcomed its first diners last month, bringing a mashup of global cuisines, agave cocktails, and modern-industrial vibes to Rice Village. 1-800-Lucky, a popular Miami food hall that’s packed with Asian eateries, is officially on its way to Houston.
