I mean, I agree with the pick but I found this hilarious:
As Daniel kindly points out in his appearance, “The tortilla is essential.”
Al Pastor L.A. Taco Pick: Leo’s Tacos
c’mon man, Leo’s is great but the tortilla is the typical cheap street tortilla - it’s what I expect for $1.25/taco. Where can I find some good al pastor on high quality tortillas besides 1986?
Remember the cutaway scene in the series when a woman in Michoacán proudly reveals, “The fattiness in the carnitas is what makes them tasty.” She is 100 percent correct. The one thing I learned in my life-changing carnitas journey is that if you’re going to eat carnitas, you gotta pretty much take a fucken swan-dive into the pool of the luscious rendered carnitas fat. If that fat isn’t running down your chin, arms, and your fingers aren’t sticky after with manteca , then you or the vendor didn’t do it properly. The best spots I ate at in Quiroga, Morelia, and Huandacareo all had one thing in common: The meat melted in your mouth and the caramelized pork skin was so gelatinous that it resembled freshly made chewy caramel.
Man, I have not had this experience anywhere including Carnitas El Momo.
