K Taquito Aviles

Tex-MexNorth$10-$25

A bright blip on the radar for lovers of goat meat, the menu is very complete for a taquería, but Mario, the taquero, also adds seasonal specials, based on what he finds at the market. During corn season he offers an exemplary elote, sweet caramelized grilled corn slathered with mayo, crema fresca, cheese, and chile, with a squeeze of lime. He'll slice it off of the cob to serve it as esquites if you ask.
