I spend a lot of time in the San Jose area and have converged on some hole in the wall Mexican restaurants with carnitas that I find myself dreaming of when I am not there.
Can I get a fix in Boston? Requirements: accessible via T, cheap, authentic, has beer or BYOB. Not a taco or burrito w/ carnitas in it, but a carnitas plate featuring just.
Love Angela's but it is not very 'porky'.
La Verdad has it on the menu, is it any good? Not really in the 'hole in the wall' spirit.
Any help appreciated.
BTW if you are in the Silicon Valley check out Maria Elana's in Alviso and Don Pedro's on Post St. in Downtown San Jose. Carnitas to die for.
