westside weekend taco alert

Bandini | Oct 1, 200604:17 AM     5

taco tables are a rarity on the westside so i was pleasantly suprised to find one in the Palms market on motor ave. There used to be a taco truck in this parking lot but i havn't seen it in awhile.

an older mexican lady with a flat grill roasting jalapenos and a pile of onions as well as braising several kinds of meats.chorizo, carne asada, lengua. There's no menu just different stacks of grilled meat. You tell her what kind of meat you want and then she scoops up the meat into a tortilla that has and tops them off with onions ,cilantro and this really tasty red tomatillo salsa. A grilled jalapeno and grilled onions on request.

If the butcher sells it she'll most likely grill it up for ya. The boy before me asked for a chicharrones taco and she went to the butcher and came back with some pork skins.

the grilled jalepeno was sliced so i just folded it into my asada taco and bit into the little baby bomb. Yum! the juicyness of the beef and salsa and pepper hit the spot.

I didn't have my camera with me. I usually do but i just ran out for some tomatillos and chile arbols to make a salsa and didn't figure to run across any tacos.

if you're in the neighborhood check it out tho...saturdays and sundays..not sure about weekdays.
