Have you ever had one of those moments when you think of something brilliant and you intend to publish it to the world, knowing full well that everybody will revel in your epiphany? Sometimes you get so excited thinking about the joy and happiness you will spread to others and just know that this is going to be the information that will save somebody's life. In a modest way, I like to think I save a life with every post. Somewhere, across this great city, somebody is sad and hungry and would end it all but for my suggestion.
But alas, other sources have sucked the joy out of my life. It's like that Superdrag song - who sucked out the feeling. I'll tell you who. The Star-Telegram. The Fort Worth Weekly. And apparently everybody in the world. Despite my knowledge of this place back when I reviewed Taqueria San Luis, I had not eaten there until recently. And now my stories of greatness will fall on "i told you so" ears.
Well, I'll tell you anyways. Taqueria San Antonio is a Mexican road side cart, in a building and it serves a variety of meat options in a number of edible containers. They have tacos, enchiladas, gorditas and probably tortas. I had the chicken in peppers and onions in a gordita and one of the beef options in a gordita. I think there were three or four options but I was so enchanted with the fact that the enchiladas were made when you ordered them that I forgot the details. The end result - a delicious meal. The bread of the gordita was the perfect thickness with enough lard to keep it moist and it neatly contained my greasy meat options.
Everything tasted so fresh and it was so surprisingly clean that I decided to take Mrs. FWHITW for some breakfast burrito fun. The burritos were delicious and they had a brilliant combination - eggs and pico combined. And unlike other places in town, they didn't use a pico scent to flavor their eggs. The burritos were a great price and they were the perfect size. It was like being in Mexico. Except I've never actually had a breakfast burrito in Mexico. And there was no Moctezuma's revenge.
So, despite the fact that everybody already knew about this place, and despite the fact that I'm bringing you nothing new, I went and wanted to tell you all about it. I would still put some other burritos up against the Taqueria San Antonio burrito, but the variety of options in the eggs, the variety of meats for lunch and the authenticity of this place gives it an edge.
If you want to go, Taqueria San Antonio it is located at 7905 Camp Bowie Boulevard, on the south side of Camp Bowie, next to the Jack In Box, just west of Cherry.
