Al Pastor and Muelas: What to Buy at the Redland Market Village
In a city not lacking in taco joints, these easily stand out, and at $1.50 you'll have trouble saying no to a second round. Their rendition of Al Pastor explodes with the flavor of pineapple, and the Barbacoa sauce is sticky and rich. Even the unadorned shredded pork shines on its own, and the lengua, which was not on the taco list during our last visit, is available and should not be missed.
"Sure beats the hell out of the prices at Joe's," comments a curious onlooker to our right. Does it beat the quality or the flavor? Who knows, but at that price it's definitely worth a shot. Hit the same stall for some fish heads, which make a killer stew.
