MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Housed along a thriving row of Mexican restaurants, this beau stands tall due to its singular focus on pork. Enter only to find yourself enveloped in intoxicating aromas wafting from flash-fried chicharrónes and a pig roasting. Tightly packed yellow booths decorate the space; a counter up front showcases all that this kitchen has to offer, including meat to go. A simple, laminated menu caters to those who wish to linger—perhaps over the popular carnitas special, featuring a plate of deliciously tender pork, crispy dorado taco, frijoles, and a refreshing agua fresca to seal the savory meal. An order of creamy guac is a nice contrast to the light nopales salad.

Word to the wise: knowing Spanish is a handy asset when dealing with the warm, efficient staff.
