Tacos Carmelita Closed
We fear that the attention (from us and other outlets) may have inspired The Man to crack down on the humble, Mexico City-style taqueria. (Something to do with sales tax.) We were big fans of the chicharrón in salsa verde, the chicken-on-the-bone in chipotle crema and the picadillo made with ground beef, potatoes, green peas and carrots.
The logo has been painted over, the walls are bare, but a new taqueria sits in its place. Is it the same owners under a new name? Or is it a totally different taqueria? Details to come.
