Carnitas - East Bay

amohler | Apr 6, 2014 09:26 AM

Years ago I use to have a taco party with carnitas from Taqueria Durango on Foothill in Oakland. Jesus made a unique barbecued pork and his beans were fatted with the smoked drippings gathered as the pork cooked. The restaurant was flagged with smoke pouring from the parking lot from the oil drums he used as barbecues. Jesus no longer owns Taqueria Durango, so now that I want to hold the party again, my source of meat and beans is gone. Any recommendations on excellent barbecued pork/carnitas in the East Bay close to or in Oakland? I have a month to taste test various pork products.
