Mariela's Tacos - Tacos sucked, anyone else like the caldo?

jaydee | Jan 22, 200705:08 PM

Friend talked me into trying out Mariela's on 3rd St, across from Jon's market (3662 W 3rd St). Ordered 6 tacos, 2 of carnitas, 2 of al pastor (abodaba) and 2 carne asada. All 6 were underwhelming - pastor was flavorless, carnitas particularly dry and asada was lacking. Very disappointed, but as I looked around, I saw everyone eating soup. Now, it could have been because it's cold and maybe it's the weekend menudo crowd - but has anyone tried the soup? The bowls were heaping with veggies and meat and looked pretty good. I'd be willing to try this place out again - but just for soup. Thoughts?
