A new taco spot with major chef power hits Lake Highlands today. Resident Taqueria is the brainchild of chef Andrew Savoie, who's hung his hat at big-time restaurants like The Inn at Little Washington, Bouchon, and Jean Georges. More recently, he served as a culinary instructor at The Art Institute here in Dallas.
But enough on Savoie's background: What's important here are the tacos, which come wrapped in rustic, made-to-order corn tortillas. Fillings include braised chicken with mole and housemade chorizo with potato, and there are plenty of vegetarian options, too, including an on-trend cauliflower and kale version. The menu is rounded out with street-style corn, fresh guac, and aguas frescas, plus Mexican beer and the all-important Topo Chico.
Resident Taqueria is now open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Check out the menu below:
