Jarabe Mexican Street Food serves the breakfast taco Chicago's been wanting. After running a food truck, brothers Teddy and Alexis Vejar opened the small shop in the West Side neighborhood of Tri-Taylor a few months ago, and they've devoted half the menu to the morning meal. Jarabe currently has four stunning breakfast tacos on its menu. I do have a favorite. The #1 ($3) collects a pile of browned potatoes and crisped-up chorizo with soft scrambled eggs, a generous shower of salty queso fresco and a scoop of fresh pico de gallo. It's the kind of taco made for fueling a body for serious work or for reviving a hung-over one. That the warm and flexible flour tortilla, made by El Milagro, manages not to crumble immediately deserves respect.
