About a five minute walk from my house is a little mini-mall with a
taco shop that serves the best tacos in Vegas, by far — the best
carnitas tacos I've ever had anywhere. The carnitas is tender but
has crispy, charcoal-flavored edges — the fried fish in the fish tacos
is fresh and moist but crunchy on the outside. The tacos are two
bucks apiece and two
of them make a fine meal.
The shop opens onto a dingy dive bar next door where they'll serve the
food and where you can smoke and drink. The bar and the shop are
both open 24/7. The weirdest people in the world go there, so I
feel right at home.
It's my new favorite joint in Vegas.
