Cacao Mexicatessen

$$$$
Written by

Cacao doesn’t just have one of the most phonetically satisfying words in the English language in its name (Mexicatessen), it’s also home to some of our favorite tacos in Northeast LA. The duck carnitas are a signature here, which has a lot to do with how its sweet fattiness soaks perfectly into the warm blue corn tortilla. We also love the baja fish, which comes with a giant piece of golden fried fish topped with cabbage and crema, as well as the crispy guisado de pato, a mixture of duck crackling and nopal that’s been stewed in a savory chile arbol salsa. The place is technically order-at-the-counter, but there’s a large adjacent dining room with TVs and a full bar if you want to hang out.
