After five-plus years of food truck fame, the family behind this enterprise now also serves its Veracruz-style tacos at a tiny cottage on Fairmount (where Modest Rogers used to be). The meat in both our generously stuffed cochinita pibil and barbacoa tacos was so flavorfully marinated we didn’t need salsa, while our fried fish tacos welcomed squirts of tangy tomatillo sauce. The Veracruz Platter is a good shareable option, featuring a well-seasoned potato empanada topped with avocado; a sope layered with queso fresco, onions, and a delicious verde sauce; and two garnachas slathered with an earthy ancho chile sauce and sprinkled with queso fresco and onions. The tortas are splendid, hearty sandwiches packing a choice of two meats (we loved the chicken tinga), refried black beans, molten mozzarella, and avocado. For dessert, fried plantains with ice cream and house-made strawberry jam hit the spot.
