Chef and co-founder, Taqueria del Sol
One of the geniuses behind Westside’s popular fast-casual taco joint, Taqueria del Sol, Hernandez is known for efficiently using a small, from-scratch kitchen. At his restaurant you can try popular dishes of cornmeal-crusted tilapia tacos and turnip greens, but when he goes out, he looks for something a bit different but close to his restaurant.
Favorite restaurant: Little Star Provisions, Westside
Why he loves it: I’ve been going there since it opened. It’s close to the Westside Taqueria location, so I can just walk across the parking lot and grab a sandwich for lunch.
Favorite dish: I love both the shrimp po’ boy and the reuben. The po’ boy is served with Cajun mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. The reuben is the perfect mixture of buttery and tangy.
