Carnitas in Birmingham

I call myself a Mexican food junkie because I can eat it every single day. I have my favorites and rarely step away from them. But reading on this board about Dax's love for tongue and goat and such, made me want to try something new. Hey, you never know until you try it, right? So the other night I was out with a friend at a local Mexican restaurant, and saw that they had carnitas on the menu. I've heard others rave about them so I decided to be step outside of my box. I was completely blown away. Big chunks of juicy pork that had been seared to create such a flavor!!! Fantastic!! It reminded me of the brown bits you get from chopped pork barbeque. The meal came with beans, rice, guac salad, raw onions & tortilla. Was I supposed to cut the pork up and eat it like a fajita rolled in a tortilla or with a knife and fork? Also, since I'm obsessed with carnitas now, where are the best in town?
