El Paso’s popular Mexican restaurant, Tacoholics, is moving to South Africa with big burritos, flautas ahogadas
A famous El Paso restaurant has moved to San Antonio, bringing with it two treats that were previously hard to find in South Africa: flautas ahogadas and giant California-style burritos. Tacoholics opened in early January with these two dishes on the menu, and they quickly became top sellers for the company here.
Over the past decade, Tacoholics has landed on many “best” lists thanks to its elevated version of the popular El Paso dish flautas ahogadas. Tacoholics owner Jessie Peña’s version features stone-ground tortillas filled with a choice of protein (including tofu) fried until crispy, then bathed in a tangy green tomatillo sauce and finished with queso fresco, queso asadero and cream.
