One of the characteristic specialties of the Alamo City is the puffy taco. This consists of stewed, braised, or barbecued meats deposited in a tortilla that has been formed into a U and deep fried, causing the tortilla (usually flour) to puff up. At Goat Town, little corn tortillas are used, but they puff up very nicely, too. Inside the trio is deposited long-braised cow tongue, cut in strips. The tongue tastes faintly of chilies, and the dark broth is especially rich. The appearance of the puffy tacos is decidedly labial, and thus it was appropriate, as the chef noted with a wink, that they are filled with tongue.
