San Pablo: Mom's Cuisine - the barbacoa crawl part 1 ... mmmmm .... lamb tacos

On Saturday and Sunday Mom's has lamb barbecoa. There is the option to just get a lamb taco ($3), but get the full meal which comes with a wonderful rich consume frangrant with mint and full of rice, garbanzo beans, a few pieces of carrots and little bits of lamb.

The lamb itself is served with pico de galo, salsa verde for a little heat and a half dozen small tortillas. The ideas is to make your own tacos and sip the consume. It is really the mint that makes that consume.

I also picked up a cabeza taco al vapor. This is without a doubt the best beef cheek taco I have ever had. The meat absolutely juicy and fabulous, piled high on a two steamed tacos and topped with cilantro, onion, and some sort of salsa I've never seen before, it was almost like a red paste and had a little smokieness to it. A huge charred jalapena and one of their delicious grilled onions came with it. All this wonderfullness for $1.25.

For dessert I had a cute ducky gelatina .- about the size and shape of a peep chicken, this was made of gelatin. Very nice.
