Who makes the best Carnitas in BayArea?

My current favorite is El taco Zamorano ,across the street from the Hells Angeles Hdq's on Foothill in Oakland.

I order the Carnitas Special dinner to go ,It comes in two large bags and weighs about 4 pounds.

Most of the heft is due to the large rice and beans platter.
However half of plate #2 is filled Pork Carnitas that is moist on the inside, crunchy on the outside from being fried in lard.
If you hit on the right day it can be jaw dropping.

Any other suggestions?
