Restaurant roundup: Salsa, tacos, tamales, oysters

victoriassalsa

We have an update on Victoria’s Mexican Grill, which has been open for over a year on West Davis at Willomet. Last summer, we warned you not to mistake the habanero salsa for queso. It looks like they have a new recipe for habanero salsa, which looks more like salsa than cheese (pictured above), but it’s still very hot. Also, they now serve black-bean dip with the chips.

Dallas Morning News food critic Leslee Brenner has taken some heat lately, and this time it has to do with tacos. In her list of the best tacos in the Dallas area, she goofed on some taco terminology. Oak Cliff-based taco expert Jose Ralat Maldonado offered to take her to school. At any rate, only one of the taco places on Brenner’s list is in Oak Cliff, and it happens to be my personal favorite: Los Torres Taquería.

The newest addition to Trinity Groves is a tamale place. DiDi’s Tamale Diner, which has one location in Mesquite, is expected to open soon. The new location will offer a full bar, specializing in tequila and mescal, along with their Mexican- and Central American-style tamales.
