For example, when I ordered four tacos ($10) there was first the choice of meat, featuring carne asada, al pastor, carnitas, chicken, shrimp and vegetarian. While all had certain strengths, including, to my surprise, the vegetarian, which was a medley of veggies (mushrooms, broccoli, onions and more) tossed in a sauce that allowed the flavors to expand, they come to you essentially bare. The meat, so to speak, of the tacos is prepared in the back and sent out, but then you are brought out a tower of toppings. Included is a fresh guacamole, a delightfully spicy salsa, a salsa verde, freshly chopped cilantro and pico de gallo.
Alibi recommends: Literally everything. Nothing we tried was even close to bad.
Vibe: Laidback street tacos that you build yourself
