Carnitas El Momo


6″x6″ Hand Cut, Hand Sewed Felt Appliqué with Fabric Paint

There are many, many places where you can get yourself a terrific carnitas taco, but the one that’s perhaps most transformative is over at the Carnitas El Momo truck, where Romulo “Momo” Acosta has become something of a household name amongst certain taco-crazed folks in the blogosphere. And no wonder: for his Guanajuato-style carnitas, Acosta stews the pork slowly, patiently, in an enormous copper pot, and the results are improbably tender yet absolutely packed in flavor. You can specify your favorite cut, but ask for a taco surtido and you’ll get a fine mix of meat, including prized bits of skin.
