How to pick a taquería with Texas Monthly taco editor Jose R. Ralat – Oak Cliff The job came six years after the magazine hired its first barbecue editor, Dallas resident Daniel Vaughn. “Tacos are important to every Texan, which I think is why Texas Monthly made this position,” Ralat says. “They’re essential not only to the Texas diet but also to the Texas identity, and that’s just growing.” Ralat first started writing about tacos for the Dallas Observer about 10 years ago, shortly after he and wife, Jessica Salcedo Ralat, moved to Oak Cliff from Brooklyn. He started his own website, The Taco Trail, and contributed freelance work to publications including Eater while working as the full-time food and beverage editor for Dallas-based Cowboys & Indians magazine.
