La Fruta Feliz is a Mexican restaurant on the East Side, near Airport and Manor. They make some solid breakfast tacos, but we’re especially big fans of their lunch tacos and tortas, with meats like barbacoa de chivo (barbecue goat), and some really great al pastor. They also have a huge fruit and veggie juice list, so go ahead and throw on a Digestivo (papaya, orange, and carrots) to help you wash it all down.
