I live in East Dallas. Lakewood, specifically. And in Lakewood, we are lucky enough to have several delicious restaurants to choose from when we are hungry and our kitchens just seem like a lot of …work. But there is a nearby East Dallas neighborhood that is quite vast called Lake Highlands. These vast lands are almost devoid of restaurants worth setting foot inside. (Side note: If I am forgetting your favorite Lake Highlands restaurant, PLEASE let me know. Seriously. Unless it’s like Mi Cocina or Picasso’s or something. I already know about those.)
Anyway, my point is, that dearth ends now. Resident Taqueria Opens Today! Amy Savoie, after living elsewhere and coming back home to Dallas, finding herself scarfing down as much Tex-Mex as possible, easily convinced her chef/culinary instructor husband Andrew to consider that type of food for a restaurant (ad)venture. “We were basically keeping Mi Cocina in business,” she told me yesterday. Yikes.
Anyway, I’m excited to get back over to Resident Taqueria and eat, um, everything on the “Everything’s $3” menu (except for the couple tacos that are porky, of course). Everything sounds completely delicious and exactly what Lake Highlands needs. Hopefully this little spot is a preview of what’s to come for this residential pocket of Dallas.

For now, here are a few more photos from my visit yesterday:
