No. 91 Tacos Campechanos at La Calle Taqueria

1565 West Alameda Avenue
Alameda Avenue between Federal and I-25 is a kind of miniature Federal Boulevard all on its own; you'll find Chinese dim sum houses, Vietnamese sandwich shops, Cajun-Asian crayfish dens and, of course, no shortage of Mexican taquerias and tortas stands. One of those, Las Tortugas, spawned La Calle Taqueria a couple of years ago, and while la madre still serves up some mean overstuffed sandwiches, la niña has stolen our hearts with its vast variety of diminutive but still hefty tacos. Best bets include pineapple-spiked tacos al pastor, tender tacos de chivo and the Yucatecan specialty cochinita pibil. But if we can't decide, we always start with the tacos campechanos -- rich shredded pork made even more toothsome with the addition of slow-cooked strands of pork skin.
