This is everyone's favorite neighbourhood spot; rock the sake kamikazes here while digging into a bowl of popcorn.
The concept is Italian, but more lower case than many in that crop. At L'oca, there’s not really anything here that exists outside of those traditions, but there are no belabored attempts to make everything autentico. Like it's simple housemade pasta, showiness isn’t really the point.
The barbacoa is top notch, while the picadillo is mind-numbingly good, made from minced – not ground – beef. What sucked us in originally was the promise of chivo (goat barbacoa), which melts in your mouth with intensely good flavor and isn't too gamey. The carne guisada is tender and smothered in a rich, beefy, comino-kissed sauce, while the pork carnitas are tender and unctuous. When it all settles out, La Fruta has vaulted into rarified territory as one of the best taquerias in town.
The same thin-crust pies and Italian subs you loved at the original Crestview location are dished out at this Windsor Park outpost.
