Obsessed: Adam Timney of Starbelly on Tacos

Adam Timney, chef, Starbelly

Tacos are the ultimate snack. Meat and bread. Beans should not be on a taco. Beans are a side. I don’t want a crispy shell. I don’t want sour cream. No super tacos. Just meat, salsa, cilantro and chopped raw onion. The tacos from the El Tonayense trucks are my favorite. I get a combo—tripe, cabeza, lengua and buche. They cook their tripe perfectly. Most places overcook it, but they do it just right, so it’s a little crispy and a little chewy. Four tacos, a Tamarindo—then a nap.
