Carnitas Taco

Carnitas Taco

We interrupt the regularly scheduled weekend blog to give you the heads up on some good tacos :)

Meg was kind enough to swing by my place this weekend with some Al Pastor tacos in hand from the relatively new La Flor de Puebla. Well- they were so darned good (and spicy!) that i thought i'd go in myself and investigate the goods.
Went in yesterday and was pleasantly greeted by 5 year old Stephanie- the owners daughter and after i put in my order for 3 carnitas tacos and 3 cheese & chicken taquitos, we sat and chit-chatted about Bratz and Christmas balls for about 10 minutes while they cooked up my meal fresh!
Got some queso crema and green sauce on the side and $8.50 later, was home chowing down on some damn fine food. I'd put these tacos on par with the taco truck maybe even, hahaha!
The taquitos were a bit dry for my taste, but the cheese ones were pretty tastey.
Go check em out on the weekends and they have tamales- i'm planning on it this Saturday.

anyone know whats up with oleput? I saw the sign weeks ago saying renovations, that they were getting food & wine, now it looks cleared out, erlack???

My understanding is that Oleput is renovating because they got their liquor license. I'll have to go over and peek in.

But yeah, those al pastor tacos were nice and spicy! I definitely want to try some other things. And they are so nice and close! Glad to hear the positive review.

been here 4 times in two weeks. one word -YUMMY! it's a great plus that we live a whole block and a half from here as well. It's a great alternate-too-lazy-to-cook-lets-get-the-cheap-food type of place. For example: 2 tacos, 2 tamales 2 guava drinks= 9 bucks. You really can't go wrong. Be warned though, their green sauce is HOT.

I ate here today and the tacos were even better than I remembered! So glad this place is so close - super yum! Love that green sauce, too.

This is the kind of taco I like because they seems like Mexican make that's perfect because I've heard that they also use to adding them Generic Viagra in order to giving it other flavor.
