As the bagel is to New York, the breakfast taco is to Austin. It’s the morning meal of champions, the curer of hangovers, and a city-wide unifier. But as any Austin transplant will tell you, there’s a massive breakfast taco drought in New York City. Enter King David Tacos, an authentic Austin-style breakfast taco stand helmed by Austinite Liz Solomon. After working in advertising for years, she decided to change careers and dedicate her life to the pursuit of the perfect breakfast tacos. Following the mantra of the Austin breakfast taco, Liz stuffs flour tortillas with a simple yet superb mixture of egg-filled Tex-Mex bliss. Her latest and most popular taco, Mom’s Migas, uses a combination of tortilla chips, jalapeno rajas, and her mother’s salsa recipe all mixed in with fluffy, soft scrambled eggs. It’s pure Lone Star bliss.
