Screaming Goat (it’s a good thing)

We just found out that there’s a taco shop just a few blocks from our home. Now, we do not live in a neighborhood where taquerias are plentiful (probably the only flaw of our neighborhood… I mean our corner store sells fresh samosas, for crying out loud), so finding this place made us very happy.

I’m not sure why it’s called Screaming Goat… I didn’t see goat on the menu or anything. But it’s a cute little house converted into a cute little restaurant, with a few picnic tables outside in case the weather is nice (which is pretty much all the time in Austin).

We sampled a few things…

We started with chips and queso. The chips were freshly fried, thick and crispy and good on their own. The queso was pretty good, too.

I am thrilled that they serve horchata, one of my favorite beverages.

I tried the chicken adobado taco, fresh and yummy and loaded with veggies.


Justin had the hamburger (What?! A burger at a taco place? The nerve.), with jalapenos of course, which he said was great.

You know, it’s lunchtime on Saturday, and I’m thinking a short walk to Screaming Goat might be in order. So, um, bye.
