Over on East 7th, Granny’s offers tacos, bowls, quesadillas, and burritos out of a small food truck (it’s actually a repurposed ambulance). Unless you’ve been to Granny’s—or have your own grandmother with a family recipe for excellent mole and chilaquiles—there’s a good chance you haven’t had a breakfast taco quite like their chilaquil taco. Here, crispy corn chips in a fluffy flour tortilla get topped with a spicy and earthy house-made mole, cotija cheese, onion, and pickled jalapeno. Unlike its more popular breakfast cousin, migas, this is an eggless taco. But after a few of those ultra-savory and crunchy bites, you’ll forget eggs ever existed.
