TACO OF THE WEEK #17: TACOS DE ARRACHERA @ LOS PICUDOS

324 0

Los Picudos, which opened in 1981, is a beloved institution in Del Valle. The aroma of grilled meat greets you from a half block away in this quiet residential tree-lined street. The usual bistec, costilla, chuleta and pechuga de pollo are offered but best is arrachera, (flank steak) chopped small with finesse. A huge molcajete of pico de gallo, a brick red guajillo and a green salsa as well as pickled onion with spiky serranos awaits to adorn these simple, honest morsels of smoke imbued carnivorous pleasure. That said, the rajas con queso taco is a good vegetarian option: the generous heap of asadero cheese is grilled with strips of mild poblano.
