Visit Austin: Suerte

I wasn't an adventurous eater growing up, and I wasn't exposed to a lot of different cuisines and cultures, so I make sure to encourage my kids to try all sorts of foods.  While in Austin, we dined at Suerte, a restaurant that focuses on masa, and it's where my kids tried goat and beef tongue for the first time.  
Goat Barbacoa

When the Goat Barbacoa was presented to the table, it immediately reminded me of laulau!  I thought the goat was a little too gamy, but it was a great experience for my kids, and it was neat to be able to discuss the similarities between Mexican and Hawaiian food.  
Quesadilla de Res

Tlacoyo de Lengua

The Tlacoyo de Lengua consisted of smoked beef tongue topped with grilled kale and smothered with caledera cheese. The kids ate it up, and if I didn't tell them what it was, I'm sure they would have thought it was just regular beef.
Sunchokes y Beets

Confit sunchokes sat in a pool of vibrant beet mole, along with pickled beets and sunchoke chips.  Cotija finished off the dish.

The Huarache is a seasonal dish.  If you love mushrooms, you'll love this dish, with a thin layer of masa topped with mushrooms,

Suadero Tacos

This was my favorite dish of the night.  Incredibly tender and flavorful confit wagyu brisket with a black magic oil,  avocado crudo, onions, and cilantro made for such a delicious taco.  I could've eaten all of them myself! 
Frijoles Envenenados

The family devoured the Frijoles Envenenados - refried pinto beans topped with chorizo-bacon, guajillo chile, and fried oregano.  Such a delicious dip!

Sweet Papas
I loved the Sweet Papas, which was simply prepared grilled, and accompanied by a lemon aioli and drizzled with a habaƱero-garlic oil.

Service was prompt and friendly, and I'd definitely recommend Suerte if you're looking to enjoy a nice fusion of Mexican and Texan cuisine.
