The small menu is packed with inventive cuisine, a combination of street-food staples and popular cantina dishes, with a quality that shows from the first bite of chips and salsa.

La Catedral del Marisco

The "cathedral of seafood" is a jaw-dropper. The menu is half seafood and half grilled, meat-centric Norteño. Try the tostada de pulpo, a pile of tender, griddled octopus with scallions and pepper.

2711 E. Cesar Chavez, 512/476-7878

Las Cazuelas

Look for a dozen egg dishes for early risers, as well as machacado and nopales, enchiladas potosinas, and plenty of Mexican standards.

Los Comales

This expert purveyor of real Norteño-style grilled meats and side dishes offers reliable Interior dishes such as puerco en chile colorado and pollo en mole poblano to round out the menu.
