5 Foods Buzzfeed Forgot in its '25 Foods Texas Does Better Than Anywhere Else' Post

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2014 at 11:13 AM

Much like our readers who fill comments sections with "How dare you forget X" and "I can't believe you left off Y" in any list we make, I decided to take Buzzfeed to task over a June 23 list by staffer Javier Moreno titled "25 Foods Texas Does Better Than Anyone Else."

While the list did include awesome items (brisket, Lulu's chicken fried steak, kolaches), it did leave off a few glaring omissions. Here they are:

1. Big Red

Basically the life source of many a hungover San Antonian on weekends.

2. Puffy tacos

3. Salsa

Chips and queso are fine and dandy, but chips and salsa are the precursor to every Tex-Mex meal.

4. Guacamole

Two words: Tableside guac. Three more words: Fresh as heck.

5. Mangonadas/Raspas/Picadillys

How else are we supposed to stay cool during the summer without raspas from Chamoy City Limits and its peers?
