One such place that accomplishes that is Morales Restaurant. Recent visits had us at the location on West Davis Street — on our latest stop, staff told us they're closing this location and opening another on South Edgefield Avenue.
Better yet is a plate of tacos rojos ($8.99). Four crispy, fried, red tortillas contain tender shredded beef and are laid side-to-side on a plate and piled with plenty of lettuce, cheese and bits of tomato. (You can choose your own protein in these.)
A truly wonderful part of this plate is that these beautiful tacos are surrounded by chorizo and potato. Chunks of the vegetable soak in that lovely grease of crispy housemade chorizo. This side can be enjoyed on its own as a morning hangover cure, but served as a complement to those delightful tacos, you’ll find yourself craving this plate on the regular.
Morales Restaurant, 2539 W. Davis St. (North Oak Cliff) and 1913 S. Edgefield Ave. (Elmwood). Cash only.
