100 Favorite Dishes, No. 74: Guisado Verde Tacos from La Nueva Fresh and Hot

To prepare for this fall's Best of Dallas® 2014 issue, we're counting down (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes. If there's a dish you think we need to try, leave it in the comments, or email me.

There's no way to construct a list of 100 Favorite Dishes without including the delicious tacos that make their way out the front door of La Nueva Fresh and Hot. They come out the door because there is no counter or seating inside, but eating a meal on your feet is a small price to pay when the food is this good.

You wouldn't want to eat inside anyway, because the ambient temperature creeps far north of a prison hot box in August. It's a punishing environment, but the source of that heat is the source of the most delicate tortillas you can buy in Dallas (make sure to take extras home) and those tortillas are half the reason La Nueva serves some of the best tacos.
