Tacos Negros is a new spot run by the same people as My Two Cents, a tremendous Southern comfort food restaurant on Pico. The tacos here meld Southern and Caribbean flavors on hand-made tortillas. Think bacalao - salted cod - with potatoes and olives in crispy shells, or callaloo with fried plantains. We recommend you try a few different ones, to get the best sense of the inventive and straight-up fun tacos they’re making here. But whatever you do, make sure you get our favorite: The pan-fried crab cake with pickled okra, which is topped with My Two Cents’ sweet, spicy hot sauce.
