Don’t Miss the Rotisserie Corn at Velvet Taco
July 15, 2015 | cimgroup
The chicken is roasted in-house. Fresh fruit bobs in the sangria. Tortillas are handcrafted from fresh ingredients. These are all part of the status quo on any given day at Velvet Taco. In the short time since this eatery has been open—only about three weeks—chefs have already established it as a front runner in the Houston dining scene. That much is clear from the 50-plus glowing reviews Velvet Taco has already racked up on Yelp.
Since the restaurant resides just one mile away from Memorial Hills, head here for lunch or dinner to try the fresh Mexican fare. The crisp tikka chicken tacos come highly recommended by regulars, stuffed with basmati rice, raita crema, Thai basil, and buttered cilantro, then drizzled with spicy pepper sauce. Order some rotisserie corn on the side; it's accompanied by queso fresco, asadero cheese, crema, Valentina, and lime.
