The tacos and sauces are outstanding at Taqueria Jalisco, but what really set yumyum drooling during a recent visit was a special Jaliscan dish they called ahead to order from the owner, Maria. Carne en su jugo is a bowl of beef, beans, and broth served with hot tortillasand garnished with radish, onion, bacon, cilantro, and lime. The name literally means “meat in its own juices,” but it ain’t just beef in that bowl: the beef was fried in bacon fat.

Other hounds like the pozole, the clove-scented birria, the cabeza and lengua tacos, and the salsa array at every table. But call ahead if you want a bowl of bliss.
