I will be having a party and had in mind having traditional barbacoa. I have a brother in law from southern mexico who had the most delicious barbacoa i have ever encountered for my niece's baptism. i wanted to get the same stuff for my party. he told me its from some mexican meat market "downtown" and you just place an order with a guy on sunday (the only day they are open) and he makes it for the day you need it. then you simply pick it up. my brother in law doesn't speak much english and i don't speak much spanish. he also didn't know the name of the market and i am not entirely sure if by downtown he means downtown houston.
does anyone know where this place may be or what the market's name is? he offered to do it himself but with the language barrier i didn't want him to order something for the number of guests i am expecting than i get shocked with a bill much higher than i thought it was going to be.
alternatively, is there another place with really good barbacoa where i can order and pick it up in bulk? itd be for 20-25 people so basically i am expecting a full sheep.
