Korean, Tex-MexMidtownUnder $10

In a nondescript strip mall on West Anderson and MoPac you’ll find this always-bustling neighborhood favorite. A menu of Mexico-inspired comfort food includes short rib salpicon, mojo pollo, mashed potato-filled enchiladas, and a five-salsa sampler (the creamy Salsa X is a real showstopper).
