Tacos Los Güichos isn't afraid to show people how it's done. The weekend-only carnitas operation sits just off of Slauson in an otherwise unassuming neighborhood. But once that superheated cazo hits the pavement on Saturday mornings, people for miles come flocking to catch the attentive taquero at work. By midmorning, Tacos Los Güichos tends to be pretty lively but no worries — one look into the pot will tell you that there's plenty to go around. This, in all of its greasy outdoor digs, is carnitas perfection. While any cut is sure to satisfy, opt for the ribs or shoulder to start — the perfectly fried pig skin that comes attached to the meaty bites of wonderfully simmered pork will have you drooling so much that you might need to hose off at the car wash next door. Corner of South Avalon Boulevard and East Slauson Avenue, SouthCentral. —Farley Elliott
