La Tejana Brings Its Breakfast Tacos to Mount Pleasant


La Tejana is trading in its pop-up lifestyle for a permanent home. Ana-Maria Jaramillo spirit Gus May, the engaged couple behind the popular Texas-style breakfast taco brand, will settle down in Mount Pleasant this spring. They’ve set up shop in the neighborhood regularly and have built a loyal following.

Jaramillo and May held one of their final pop-ups this past weekend, though they anticipate doing a few more before going dark at the end of February to prepare to open their brick-and-mortar restaurant at 3211 Mount Pleasant St. NW, the former home of Sabydee Thai & Lao Cuisine.

Their pop-up schedule had been steady for a while: Nido Wine Shop + Market in Mount Pleasant on Saturdays and Grand Duchess in Adams Morgan on Sundays. Before that, they sold tacos out of various bars, restaurants, and breweries. They got their start out of Room 11 before it closed in Columbia Heights.
