Burger week was so crazy I forgot to run a post pointing to my weekly review. Last week I hit up Velvet Taco, a restaurant I know has caused some consternation amongst taco purists who prefer their taquerias dingy, dirty and cheap.

In a town that offers so many authentic taquerias, fancy incarnations of the popular street food can come off a little clunky, but every time I pass the Henderson Avenue restaurant late on the weekend evenings the place is mobbed. While Velvet Taco might not for everyone, it certainly resonates with more than enough Dallasites to keep the restaurant chugging along.

While the tacos here lack the simplicity of a suadero taco topped only with onions and cilantro, you can't deny the results are delicious. They're also a photographer's wet dream. Take colorful ingredients into fresh tortillas and lettuce cups in a restaurant with lots of natural light and even I could end up with a pretty shot or two.
