You’ve been likened to a hard shell concealing a warm, mushy center. Note: You are not a pulled pork taco. But since we’re on the subject, get your fill (and plenty more fillings) at new cantina Verde Taqueria. Start with a casa salad (hola, cilantro vinaigrette, and smoked applewood bacon) and soups like green chicken chili. Grab a ’rita or bottled cerveza from the bar or patio and take in bright green walls and color-drenched global photos (yes, they’re for sale) courtesy of co-owner Alex Amit. No need to take an interpreter. Buffalo tofu, fried calamari, grilled fish, and summer veggies are simple to order — and should be even easier to eat. Just don’t go gettin’ soft on us. Verde Taqueria, 1426 Dresden Drive, Brookhaven (404-254-5319 or verdetacos.com).
