Chorizo and Chicken Tacos at Doña Zita
Carne Enchilada and Carnitas Tacos at Doña Zita
The bite from the raw onion, jalapeño, and the juicy red tomato, along with the crunchy lettuce and soft sauteed onions, made for a great combination of textures, flavors, and temperatures. The carnitas, however, were nothing special. The shredded pork meat was a bit dry, there were no crisp parts, and the fatty bits were too large and chewy.

Taco de Cecina at Rainbow
The cecina was perfect—chewy, salty, and a bit gamey as cecina usually is. The lettuce was crisp, the sliced onions were still crunchy and sharp, the ripe, red tomatoes of the pico de gallo were fresh and the sliced green jalapeños added heat, while the creamy, spicy, avocado-based salsa cooled and heated each bite simultaneously. The only complaint I have with the taco is that the tortillas were griddled with oil and became quite greasy. Otherwise, a good taco from start to finish.
