👋 Alissa here. It's finally warming up and outdoor dining will soon make its glorious return.

What's happening: I stopped by FoxFire Tacos at Parsons North Brewing Company in Schumacher Place last week.

What I ate: The three amigos taco trio ($12) with a different filling in each — chicken, ground beef and cauliflower — plus a side of chips and salsa ($6).

  • I added smoky sauce. Other options are sweet, spicy and diablo.
  • Tacos are topped with cabbage slaw, pico de gallo, cheese, onions, cilantro and lime.

Quick take: The fresh slaw and sauce quickly distinguished these soft corn-shell tacos from the many others I've eaten locally. They're a must-try.

  • The thin, crispy chips are non-negotiable. The salty seasoning on top is sublime.

Vibe check: Sit at outdoor picnic tables or take your meal inside Parsons North.

  • I stumbled upon two happy accidents while doing the latter: Tuesday trivia and a unique smoked sour beer from Pretentious Barrel House called Clandestine. It paired perfectly with the taco sauce.

🌮 If you go: FoxFire Tacos is generally open 5-9pm Tuesday and Wednesday, 685 Parsons Ave. Check special hours here.

🙏 Thanks to reader Nathan T., who recommends the breakfast burrito, for the tasty suggestion!
