Britt Daniel, the lead singer of Austin-born band Spoon, shared his love of the city’s breakfast taco with music website Pitchfork today. Spoon created a special taco of the month for HomeState, a self-proclaimed "Texas Kitchen" in Los Angeles, to benefit a music nonprofit. On breakfast tacos, Daniel said,
My taco is called the ‘Ranchero,’ and it’s based on the kind of tacos I’d get every morning for 59 cents when I first moved to Austin. The great thing about those breakfast taco places was that they were open til 3 in the afternoon — still an entirely appropriate time for breakfast. I’d wake up, take my girlfriend to work around 7, get breakfast, head home, catch a couple more hours of sleep, wake back up, work on a song, then head back to the taco shop at 2:45 for lunch. We called it double dipping.
