Guess where I'm eating?

Depending upon which region of Mexico you happen to be stuffing tacos down your throat, the pot-steamed, greasy and golden corn tortillas folded with different meats posing in the above snap are called tacos al vapor, tacos cazuela, and, in Mexico City, tacos de canasta, which you can buy for next to nothing from just about every mobile food vendor on the street.

There are a few taco shops in and around Denver where you can get steamed tacos, but these are by far the best I've found, and they're sold in the most unlikely location, which I'll tell you about just as soon as someone chimes in with the correct answer.

Can you guess where I'm eating?

Special bonus: Anyone who gives the first correct answer to the week's Where am I drinking/eating posts is entered into a pool -- and every Monday, we select one lucky winner who'll receive a 2011 EatDenver dining deck, worth up to $520 in discounts at independent restaurants.

Done in one. Those tacos are from El Costeno, a restaurant within a restaurant. The space is actually a joint called Stevo's Pizza and Ribs, and Stevo shares his kitchen with a guy who makes some really good Mexican food, including tacos de canasta, something that, as far as I know, you can't find anywhere else in Denver.
