Don Pedro Carnitas information
At this no-frills meat den, a man with a machete salutes you at the front counter. He awaits your command to hack off pork pieces, then wraps the thick chunks with onion and cilantro in a fresh tortilla. You then devour the taco at the tables in back. Goat stew and tripe add to the carnivorous menu. Cash only.
