Reunión 19 was formed by 3 friends who answered the call of Chef Christopher Haydostian wanting to open his 1st restaurant in Austin, TX in 2019. The 4 of them are all originally from southern California but now live across the world (Hong Kong, Austin, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles) but reunited on this dream of Chef Christopher’s to open up a kick back taco spot in Austin. What started as a simple taco shop evolved into a full service restaurant featuring authentic interior and west-coast inspired Mexican food as well as tacos. Focusing on local/sustainable ingredients, Reunión 19 strives to keep a “from scratch” culture in their preparations of food and drinks. Everything is made from scratch and prepared daily, such as their corn and flour tortillas, salsas, and guacamole. There are so many hidden gems within the concept and menu that one could eat here a dozen times and learn something new about the food, drinks, owners, history, and what make it such a special place in the Austin, TX food scene.
