Laredo Taco Company released its newest episode featuring the city of Brownsville and local Tejano singer Veronique Medrano as part of its newly released video series “Made Right Here Road Trip”, with host Mando Rayo from United Tacos of America.
Taco journalist, author, and Texas native, Rayo, along with Medrano, Tejano musician and Brownsville native, take viewers on a visit to La Pulga and taste-test their personal Laredo Taco Company favorites in the fourth episode of the series. Medrano serves as a local city advocate in the Brownsville episode. Together, they discuss the Hispanic culture influences and heritage, including a tortilla making session with Medrano’s abuela, la Reina de tortillas.
The episode features an original song, “Aguas Frescas”, written by Brownsville resident Moises Mata, performed by Medrano.
“It is a privilege to represent the Rio Grande Valley in the ‘Made Right Here Road Trip’ series,” stated Medrano. “I was born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley. I am from Brownsville and have lived throughout the valley since my college days. I am honored to showcase the beauty and authenticity of Brownsville. I am proud of the Rio Grande Valley, and I like reminding people that the Q-Taco came from here!”
Laredo Taco Company has released a new episode every week on “Taco Tuesday” since the beginning of the month and will continue into November. Cities featured include Laredo, Corpus Christi, Houston, Brownsville, San Antonio, and Dallas.
“It’s a real honor to have your culture represented in the ‘Made Right Here Road Trip’ series,” said Rayo. We connect with Latinos across Texas and give them the opportunity to share their own stories in their own ways. We also highlight my personal favorites from Laredo Taco Company. You’re sure to be craving breakfast tacos or carnitas by the end of each episode.”
