Fuego's - Albondigas Soup

bloody hammer | Feb 21, 200905:18 AM

I can't speak highly enough of the albondigas soup at Fuego's. But, first... let me say that in general, I do prefer "tex-mex" to the west coast/baja style mexican food. Smother my plate in good chili carne and melted "government cheese" and I am a happy boy.

However, I am still a big fan of certain Baja/Cali dishes. Albondigas being my #1. And nobody but nobody has ever made me a better bowl of it than Fuego's. I've lived in California several times in as many areas and have eaten albondigas soup in countless restaurants out there. Fuego's is the best I've ever had. Hands down, with no doubt.

As far as I know no one else even serves this dish in Austin. When I first got here in 2000 I would ask for it at every Mexican place I went to. Several places didn't even know what I was talking about.
