As far as food goes, you’re definitely covered. Most everything on the menu can be had with the choice of ten different meats. For example, the tacos ($3) are done like traditional street tacos. Topped with cilantro, onion and radish, you pick the meat and you’re set to go. I went with my personal favorite, carne adovada, with left the taco bursting at the seams filled, a good sign already. The fiery kick of the seasoned meat was enough to open my eyes with delight when it first ran across my tongue. It was almost melt in your mouth tender, with an over-the-top level of seasoning that didn’t feel like too much, but more as a just right. By any metric you could hold it to, the carne adovada is a straight up winner.
