Excellent meat-centric Mexican dishes—like Wagyu beef tacos made with soft corn tortillas—make this Austin spot popular with gluten-averse diners. Pastry chef Laura Sawicki makes her flourless chocolate soufflé cake with Valrhona chocolate and six kinds of chiles. “The complexity that I want can’t be achieved with just one or two,” she says, stressing that the result isn’t super-spicy: “The cake doesn’t have an aggressive heat.
