Perro Salado, Newport's very charming Mexican restaurant (19 Charles Street, Newport 401-619-4777), has opened Perrito Taqueria at 190A Thames Street. It's an eat-in/take-out sort of place featuring tacos, tostadas and other street food (using house-made tortillas). As a fan of Perro Salado's Sunday brunch/lunch (the El Perro Domingo - scallion corncakes topped with eggs, black beans, salsa verde, cheddar and jack cheeses and sour cream - is a satisfying food fest but the more basic Huevos Americanos - eggs, jalapeno hashbrowns, toast and grilled bacon or choriso - is also a good reason for fasting until noon. Add the cocktail list (including the spicy cucumber margarita) and it's a day. Reason enough to try the new place (www.elperritonewport.com).
