Austin/SXSW Edition: La Condesa

La Condesa

400A West 2nd Street
Austin, TX 78701

My First Stop

I arrived yesterday afternoon and went to the first place that was closest for dinner.  Wednesday night was a busy night for this modern Mexican restaurant called La Condesaand I have a feeling it's only going to get busier as the festival gets underway. 

We are here for tacos so lets get down to it.  Don't oder tacos here. The reason: this isn't a taqueria. The menu boasts platos fuertes like: pan-seared duck breast and a citrus rub chicken mole... doesn't that sound awesome?!  So, I ask you to not make the mistake I made and order tacos. Their tacos in general are good, but the carnitas tacos were a bit too greasy for my taste and I paid $20 for 4 tacos! Back in the day $20 bucks worth of tacos fed my family including our dog, 'El Mickey.'  

Wrap up

Don't get tacos, get a plato fuerte. Definitely call ahead and make reservations.  Here's a different POV from Austinite blogueros Taco Journalism.

The place looks promising enough to me, although when it comes to Mexican food, I’m generally very picky and can be hard to please but it’s worth a shot.
