Al pastor pork is a must: glistening red from a dry-chile marinade, citrusy with a tinge of pineapple, charred, moist, and tender, all on a homemade flour tortilla and doused with Rosita's amazing green salsa – a contender for the best in town.
Plop down at the table with a Modelo and some fiery salsas while you wait on the tacos al carbon and the chiles rellenos en nogada to arrive.
