Los Angeles has long had breakfast burritos. Now we're exploring the concept of breakfast tacos. And at LA Weekly's Brunch at the Races event on October 9, you can do a pretty thorough taco taste test.

For those unfamiliar, breakfast tacos are a Texas creation — perhaps specifically from San Antonio — that are a mainstay of Tex-Mex menus all over the state. We in California are just getting used to the idea, slowly warming up to the concept of a simpler, smaller, more egg-focused Mexican-inspired breakfast.

There will be three different versions of breakfast tacos at Brunch at the Races — from Messhall, The Briks and Moore's — and that may be the perfect number to try at once. Find out if you like them with potatoes; your preferred cheese; if spicy salsa is too much in the morning.

And if you just want to stick to the reliable, Maradentro will be there with a breakfast burrito.

And of course there will be pancake sandwiches and shrimp and grits and homemade poptarts and tortas and oysters and kebobs and something called a “French toast tamale.” Come hungry!
