If you're into breakfast tacos -- and aren't we all? -- Sugar Skull Cafe just opened in Trinity Groves, the buzzy West Dallas restaurant complex.
Sugar Skull is open for lunch and dinner, too, if you don't make it in the breakfast hours.
It comes from John Baudoin, one of the restaurateurs who runs nearby modern Spanish restaurant Casa Rubia. Dallas Morning News restaurant critic Leslie Brenner gave Casa Rubia four stars in early 2014.
Sugar Skull Cafe is a more casual restaurant inspired by street food in Mexico City. Ricardo Ledezma, former Casa Rubia sous chef, will run the kitchen at Sugar Skull.
It serves breakfast items such as El Cabrito: an egg, goat cheese, avocado, spinach and sweet peppers taco; or the Chorizo: egg, tomato, green onion and honey. Lunch and dinner items include El Pascador: a crispy snapper taco with cabbage slaw and crema roja; and the Chicharron: a crispy pork, calabazita, cilantro and crispy hominy taco. (See the full menu below.) Coffee comes via a fancy La Marzocco espresso machine.
3011 Gulden Lane, Dallas. Open Monday through Sunday beginning at 7 or 8 a.m., depending on the day. Check the website for hours, as they may change.
