Austin’s Bursting with El Paso Flavors Thanks to an EP Native
It's always a great thing to hear or see an El Paso native doing big things elsewhere. Now usually when celebrities roll through El Paso, they normally tend to eat at Mexican restaurants. This isn't a surprise because we're known for having tons of Mexican restaurants that have delicious food.
It is funny when an El Paso native moves away and says Mexican food elsewhere doesn't compare to El Paso's authentic taste. Luckily, the Capital City aka Austin, Texas is getting a taste of El Paso thanks to an El Paso native. Ivan Enriquez is an El Paso native who has been introducing El Paso's unique taste to Austin residents.
Ivan Enriquez moved to Austin in 2017 where he began his food truck business El Perrito. An item on the menu shows he must have been a regular at Chico's Tacos when he once lived here. The only reason why I say that is because he created his unique sauce for his menu item, drowned tacos.
Now from the looks of it, Ivan Enriquez is doing a heck of a job introducing El Paso flavor to Austin, Texas. After all, he was featured on Austin Monthly about schooling Austin on El Paso's unique flavors. Now after checking out a couple of videos people definitely dig El Perrito's drowned tacos.
I must warn you after watching the videos they may tempt you into taking a road trip just to be the judge. It makes me wonder who's tastes better between the two, Chico's Tacos or El Perrito. But one thing for sure is Ivan Enriquez is definitely repping El Paso proudly.
