Hecho con amor. It means, “Made with Love,” and it’s Miguel Vidal’s motto for his vision. He’s been bringing Texas comfort food to Austin for the past two years with Valentina’s – a food trailer named after his daughter. It only takes one bite of Miguel’s fresh, made-to-order tortillas and slow-smoked brisket to recognize the fusion of Mexican cuisine with the robust flavors of his San Antonio upbringing. For Miguel, cooking delivers a sense of good times, family and love. And that’s what he serves up with every order.

I'm cooking for my uncle, mom, dad, my grandmother—with respect to them and what they taught me.
