Barbacoa plate

Variety, handmade quality and value pricing make for one tasty neighborhood

 

Barbacoa plate, $11, Barbacoa Kings

Perfect grandma-style beans, plus lamb with penca a de maguey (tequila plants) buried and roasted for eight hours, oh, and handmade tortillas. Why aren’t you eating this right now?

 

Hot dog $3, Sinaloa Tacos 

Top this hot dog, bound in bacon, with grilled onions, guacamole, and salsa. Who thought such beauty existed in a tire shop parking lot?

 

DonutsDonuts, $2 each, Dulce Donuts

Twenty-four-hour donuts. Let the concept work inside you, say it aloud, let it roll around the tongue like a freshly glazed apple fritter — okay, you’re there. And if you’re not, get a fresh squeezed carrot juice or some ice cream.

 

CompletaCompleta, $5 Carlitos Cuban Food #1

Imagine a Cuban Panda Express, with proteins that change daily, plus always-excellent rice and plantains. Or go with the familiar Cuban sandwich — its the best I’ve had in town, and only $5.
