OMG! Winner winner...


The chicharron prensado taco looks so good! I like the statue of the pig holding the money bag too :) Nothing beats freshly made tortillas, great post!


Ha! It is, Bill. I've been keeping it to myself for a while now.
Thanks, cc. The prensado is *so* good with the sauce (and I really like each sauce in its own way) but this photo was better to show the chicharron-ended up getting items from the salsa bar when eating the second half of this particular taco. It can get very crowded here, with families enjoying a meal, even during the week.


Oh my, I think I'd like to get "a little of everything" myself!


Do you have a preference between flour and corn tortilla (when freshly made)? I always prefer the flour for some reason. I really like the open kitchen feel of this place as well as the seafood counter. There's something about watching your food being prepared that's comforting to me. I was laughing so hard when I read 'I think they utilize lard very well here'. I imagine vegetarians cringing at that statement while carnivores like me are giggling.


Understand completely, JanFrederick. Looking at the photos just before posting, I had a bunch of cravings hit.
I guess it depends on the situation, Faye; I do enjoy a good flour tortilla, warm and slathered with butter, but with the food here, the corn goes so well. You can see the kitchen area (and ceramic pig) in the 4th photo, all the way to the left. The refried beans here are excellent, and I am sure it has to do with the lard...

Ooh everything looks amazing. I also have been trying to eat at Antojitos Colombianos and the two times we went it was either closed because it closes super early or it was closed for the day because of a family event. Hard place to eat at!!

those carnitas look sinful good - especially with everything.


Las Morelianas/La Bahia was the best unplanned stop we've made in a long time, J.S.. It always helps to be flexible.
Thanks, Ed. These photos do capture the deliciousness.
