I started with the green sauce on the Beef Fajita and the first thing you notice is, "Wow! This green sauce kicks some ass." The salsa had an excellent flavor and was super spicy, but the taco itself was ho-hum at best with the double stacked corn tortillas lightly grilled and the filling was less than exceptional. The Beef Fajita was decent enough, your typical taco stand fare, and the Barbacoa was actually pretty fatty and saucy and could have used a little attention. The last taco I ate ended the trip on a higher note than expected. The Al Pastor was an interesting taco to say the least. The pork was tasty and lean, but it was the cardamon that added an unexpected, but welcome, flavor to the dish. I tried the Al Pastor with the red sauce which I wasn't thrilled with, but it was a good taco all around. Next time I will have to try the Al Pastor/green sauce combo as I expect that may make my mouth much happier.
