I still remember my first visit to Empellon Taqueria soon after it opened. It was very quiet. Just myself and a friend and a food blogger taking a lot of photos. I continued to go back frequently as well as to Empellon Cocina. The midtown Empellon is a fantastic next step once you get past the midtown location. The chopped cabbage salad may be one of my absolute favorites of the year.
