[HOU] Saturday high (T'afia) and low (100% Taquito)

Moved to Houston fairly recently and have been scoping out the chowhound board for tips. I've had fun at some of the recommended places and really bottomed out at others. My great meals have included random taco truck stops and vietnamese sandwiches.

Today was a true find that I'm sure all are familiar with: T'afia. Went to the Sat Market. We had a small bacon and squash quiche and an orange currant scone that were just about the best thing I've eaten since coming to Texas! The eggs in the quiche were creamy and soft with just the right amount of bacon/squash. The pastry dough was delicous. Obviously they know their pasty b/c the scone was fabulous as well. They even warmed it up for us! We also bought some Bosque Blue and Swiss cheese from the Dairymaid (I think that was the name). Can't wait to eat those but unfortunately Kraftsmen bread was all sold out. I'll have to resort to crackers. The vegetables were nice looking but there only seemed to be one vendor, is this the usual scenario? I'm truly excited by this restaurant and we were lucky enough for someone to give us a gift card so I'll report on dinner sometime in the future.

Our low was 100% taquito for lunch. Caught inthe rain we decided to stop by, had high expectations after having read it is just like a Mexico city taqueria. Tried a mixed taco plate (tinga, mole, and something else) and a pollo tostada. We were super disappointed with our meal. Cold and tasteless. The tostadas were the worst. Not even the salsa had any kick to it. Someone steer me right here, where can we go to get our taqueria fix???

Looking forward to more food adventures!
