When George’s at the Cove chef Trey Foshee announced he was opening a taco joint, fever dreams of esoteric meatstuff danced in our heads. Octopus! Elk! Bison! But the surprise star of Galaxy Taco in La Jolla Shores is—gasp—vegetarian. Hold the snarky eye-rolls until the taste test. Foshee makes blue masa tortillas from scratch, then grills a fresh avocado and lays it atop a purée of Rancho Gordo ayocote negro beans. For sweetness, he adds a famed Mexican tradition, elotes (corn mixed with chipotle mayo, Cotija cheese, lime, garlic, and green onion), before topping with cilantro. Score one for the leaf eaters.
