Aqua Linda - Athens, GA & the Salvadoran place on Chase Street

Dax | Mar 12, 200712:11 PM     5

Continuing my question to try most of the restaurants and/or taquerias serving Latin American food (broadly speaking) in the general Athens area, I finally stopped by Aqua Linda yesterday and ordered two tacos, one with goat and another with al pastor (pork). The goat was good, although a little bland. What other (Latin) places in Athens offer goat? The al pastor taco was ok I guess, but this al pastor preparation was not one with which I am familiar. It simply looked like marinated pork, stir-fried or maybe even boiled I guess (similar to the same prep at Mi Tierra, or more likely, the restaurant which occupies the former Mi Tierra space and may now be called Tres Amigos). I'm more used to the version of al pastor where the pork is marinated, spit roasted, then shaved and briefly crisped on a flat grill (the crunchier al pastor at La Jalisco tastes more like this).

Anyone try that little Salvadoran taqueria on Chase Street by Chase Street Liquors yet? Any good? I wonder if they have papusas?
