Churros El Tigre and La Fachada- SD

Ever since Masa Assassin posted about Churros El Tigre, I've been dreaming about churros. Unfortunately, July and August were really busy months for me, so I didn't have time to look for the churro cart. Finally, life has settled down and we went churro hunting, only to find nothing.

The cart's location, however, is near La Fachada, so we stopped by for dinner. I had 4 tacos: 2 birria, 1 lengua, and 1 tripa. The tripa was very lightly battered and fried, but still had a bit of a gritty flavor. Good texture, though. The birria was very good, gamey and cooked beautifully, but the lengua was excellent. The cubes of tongue were tender and flavorful, which went well with the delicious tortilla.

The man in charge at La Fachada told us the churro cart disappeared about two weeks ago... he thinks it might be due to permit issues. Buzz on the web says that the owner needed to fix his equipment and might be back mid-September. I'll be back for churros (hopefully) and some more tacos at La Fachada.

Masa Assassin or anyone else... any specifics on the churro cart?
