Texas Daily Photo: Taqueria La Playa On E.7th In Austin

In the former Taqueria Arandas #1  building sits a very fine entrant in the Austin, Texas Mexican food world. Taqueria La Playa is where I head when I need bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with jalapenos and served with a fiery red salsa.

This is a Mexican seafood house with a full range of offerings from the nearby Gulf of Mexico. I’ve never had a bad meal there and love to takemy post prandials at the little rough and tumble canteen out back that shares the parking lot.

There’s something about sipping an ice cold Miller Lite with a belly full of shrimp and Bronco blaring on the hi fi that really makes my soul sing.
