If you're an Austin-area transplant looking to replicate the breakfasts of your stoner youth, look no further than HomeState, the Los Feliz storefront that does a bang-up job of the Texas breakfast taco. There's a handful of choices, from the spartan (beans, cheese) to the relatively complex (eggs, bacon, potatoes and cheese), but it's the texture that matters, the melding of the simple ingredients with the soft flour tortillas, which are made in-house. HomeState's zippy red salsa gives the bulk of the personality, as should be the case. The sunny, friendly spot serves other treats for homesick Texans, including a killer Frito pie in a bag, kolaches and even coffee from a famed Austin roaster. But it's the tacos that keep us coming back for more. —Besha Rodell
