The original Tacos La Bala was a taco truck on a shipping wharf in Tampico, Mexico. That truck is long gone, but the Houston chain has grown to eight locations. Each has terrific tacos, but don’t miss the cochinita pibil torta here. The Mexican sandwich comes on a toasted telera roll topped with shredded, slow-cooked pork swimming in a spicy orange sauce flavored with achiote, orange and lime juice, habanero peppers, and coriander—all topped with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and crumbly Mexican white cheese and a large slice of ham. A stupendous sandwich, and large enough to split with a friend.
