Dommy passed a hot spot for outdoor al pastor pits, on Central north of Jefferson. On her return, though, she couldn’t find them and instead stumbled upon a taco table on MLK Boulevard that a guy had set up in front of his house.
There’s a grill, and a braising “hubcap” where the juices collect and infuse the meat and braised onions. Chorizos are obviously homemade, and are perfect in a mulita–you get two tortillas to soak up all the juice, and cheese to heighten the flavors. Lengua, in a taco, is melty and flavorful. Salsas include habanero salsa (unusual for an outdoor, non-Yucatecan operation).
It’s definitely a neighborhood operation, with most of the customers being neighbors–even the non-Latino kids are hooked on cabeza (although Dommy says her portion was a little gristly).
