Not content with serving only pan dulces and burritos, this industrial-chic Mexican bakery serves fantastic tacos piled with fillings beyond the commonplace tripe and al pastor. You can go gourmand with bone marrow and pork belly, for example, or go tried-and-true Texan with the seven-hour brisket marinated in chiles and tomatoes topped with guacamole and bookended by ramekins of lime wedges and prickly jalapeño salsa. But we warned: the tortillas, at approximately two-inches wide, can’t contain the crust-speckled brisket rising steeply from its corn base. You’re going to need a fork. And maybe a knife.
