Taqueria Huentitan | Humboldt Park | Mexican/Southwestern | Restaurant
Popular Hermosa birrieria where shafts of al pastor pork are hand assembled.

Our Review

At this humble palace of meat the butchers in back build layered mounds of seasoned pork for tacos al pastor; a vegetarian would do well to avoid even walking past the front window, where a shimmering shaft of pork is usually turning and browning. Strangely, even if they’ve just cut meat from spit, they tend to serve you from a hot tray where they deposit the freshly cut stuff; if you know a little Spanish, I’d recommend asking for that. Though the pork is nicely crisped, the seasoning is relatively mild, and the taco is not helped by cardboardy tortillas, though for around two bucks, what do you expect? The sign outside displays the telltale goat head, and the birria here is quite good; you can have it in a taco, but when you order it in soup you receive richly red and deeply piquant broth that enhances the flavor and moistens the generous hunks of cabrito. In addition to birria, this very popular place serves posole and menudo.
