Bob and I stopped in Monday at La Michoacana, recently relocated to Rosebank Farms. I'd been disappointed to not see them lately at Tienda Puentes, so the truck was a welcomed sight. We also had the chance to chat with Sidi Limehouse (who knows that the quezadillas are the best offering) and his trusty Labrador for a few minutes. Altogether, a nice lunch.
I've also stopped a few times lately at El Mercatido, next to the Pig at Maybank and Bohicket, where I had my first authentic tacos stateside many years ago. They've undergone quite an evolution since then. But don't be discouraged by the generic gabacho mexican decor or apologetic menu items; their tortas and tacos de carnitas are the real thing.
The new orange truck on Maybank Hwy. near the Habitat store looks promising, but I haven't caught them open yet.
