Curra's: outstanding interior Mexican food in South Austin
The Mother of all Mex.
For entrees, try the Conchinita Pibil, a traditional Yucatan dish, which is a tender pork leg cooked to perfection in a banana leaf. Tender is more than the operative word here, it's the only word. Delicious. And for $8.95 it's a steal. You'd pay 17 bucks for the same dish at Fonda. Or how about the Camarones Chihuahua? Big, beautiful shrimp, sauteed with bell and guajillo peppers, goat cheese, oregano, and tomatoes. Mama cita, donde esta su casa?
Curras is changing its menu up a bit. For one thing, the ubiquitous, tequila-producing agave leaf, is in short supply., For another, a little change is good.
But for my money, the Julieta's Famous Mole Enchiladas should never change, and I have it on authority that they won't.
