Mission favorites

was in the Mission for lunch today - got a torta with carnitas (with everything) at La Palma Mexicatessen and a taco al pastor at the El Toyonese taco truck on Harrison & 22nd, I think.
The taco al pastor with onions, cilantro and a tomatillo sauce(and a lemon wedge) on top was truly wonderful - so tasty! The torta was a bit bland compared to this....the carnitas was pretty savory but the bread didn't add much - don't some places warm the bread/or toast it on the grill? That would have helped.....I'll definitely be back to try some of the other items from El Toyonese.
