Very good al pastor/marinated pork, moist but crisp, a savoury blend of subtle sweet and sour and spice. Pretty good lengua/tongue too, beefy but a tad dry. I think I prefer the lengua at Tacos Lupita -- more chew too it.

Quesadilla with potatoes was delicious too, the sour cream rounding off the potato very nicely.

Lardy carnitas in the slightly hard gorditas.

Homey Mexican from heart to stomach. Good visceral eating.


Gelati at a nearby caffe - La P.... something - the one near Lizzie's, across the street. Pretty good hazelnut with a hint of butteriness, honest pistacchio, true tasting espresso. Fairly good flavours on the whole, but texture was a little watery....none of that soft richness, ever so slightly sticky.


Thoroughly enjoyed 9live's oft suggested lamb sandwich at Artu's in the North End, a good amount of warm sliced roast lamb with the occasional savoury vein of fat for texture and flavour variation. Herbs, olive oil and very welcome flecks of red chilli heat coat the topping of roasted eggplant, its coolness contrasting and mingling with the warmth of the lamb.

I'm eyeing the breaded chicken sandwich with balsamic next.
