1) I am a former Austin resident now living in San Francisco. I'm coming back to visit and was perusing the chow-board to see new developments in Mexican and Tex-Mex fare. I loved Polvo's and will try to make it there for dinner. Any other ideas?
2) I'm not finding much commentary on Taco Express on South Lamar. PLEASE tell me that this place is still in business, and then further reassure me by saying that it is still outstanding for breakfast tacos. Maria's huevos con chorizo or pastor tacos with a little of that homemade chimichurri-style salsa is a delight that is forever burned into my culinary memory. That breakfast followed by some time at Barton Springs was always the perfect hangover cure.
As a former transit planner I regret that I was unable to sell the idea of a bus route down Lamar called the "Taco Express".
