Al pastor or chicharrónes
Taqueria Taconmadre (address and info)
$1 breakfast tacos aren’t the only things that make this bright green taqueria-and-taco-truck hybrid special (though those really, really help the cause). It’s the fact that you can get fat, beautifully greasy tacos 24/7 that really makes this spot next level. The tender al pastor and crisp chicharrónes, both loaded with fiery salsa, chopped onion, and lime, are particularly excellent after a night out at the bars.
Tacos de mixtos
100% Taquito (address and info)
What started out as a school project has blossomed into a 100% fantastic taco shop. Though every order comes with three small tacos of your choice of house-made corn or flour tortillas, big appetites may need to add on sides like chicharrón con guac or salsa. Get the tacos de mixtos to get a sampler of carne asada, al pastor, AND tinga (spicy chipotle brisket).
