you know you're in for a treat when you see someone expertly making corn tortillas by hand! our first visit to cacao mexicatessen in eagle rock did not disappoint. we went really not knowing what to expect and were delighted to find a long wait, an extensive taco menu, amazing mission fig mole, wines from baja, and even a jonathan gold sighting.

we stuck with the mole fries and tacos. everything is made to order, so we basically finished all of the fries before any of the tacos arrived. no worries though, because they were amazing. the duck carnitas was out of this world and definitely the highlight of the meal, but all of it was fresh, tasty and of the best quality.

taco carnitas de pato: duck confit, avocado, vinegar onion, radishes, chile oil.
