Making a leisurely trip home Sunday after a stop a L'Aventure, scoring some Jacob Toft cuvee, and a taste of Stephan's Cote a Cote out of the tank, WOW! (release date May 1), I stopped at this little market on the NE corner of Spring and 15th. Met with incredible smells walking in the door. Being a one man operation, I had the chance to check out things while a to go order was being prepared. The standard deli case with meats and cheeses, folks tear off a check list order sheet for the type of bread, meat, cheese, condiments and extras they want. Daily specials are:
Mon: Chipotle chicken sand
Tues: tinga Tostadas
Wed: BBQ Tri-tip sand
Thus: Chicken BBQ quesadilla
Fri: Carne Asada tacos
Sat: Turkey Bacon Avocado sand
I spied a vertical spit back on the cook line and sure enough it was al pastor. When I got a chance to chat with the owner he said on weekends he does all sorts of tacos... cabeza, tripas, asada, and of course al pastor, that aren't offered on week days. If I hadn't been so stuffed from the eggs sardou for a late breakfast at Bon Temps in SLO I would have ordered one of everything.
A search of this board didn't turn up anything, wondering if any local hounds have tried the place?
