Antojitos Mexicanos Tenorio

$$$$

Antojitos Mexicanos Tenorio is a casual Mexican restaurant in a Kendall strip mall. They have an actual vertical spit to make tacos al pastor the right way, and they are excellent: a deep sunset red in color from achiote, just a little smokey, and with a good balance of crunchy charred bits and rich juicy pieces. The carnitas tacos aren’t far behind and feature confit pork that pulls apart with zero resistance. The excellent chorizo taco uses leaner Mexican chorizo crumbled into big chunks, eliminating the trail of red grease that usually flows down our forearms when we eat chorizo tacos. If you order one thing here, though, it should be the alambre, a sizzling fajita plate with a mix of carne asada, chorizo, ham, bacon, onions, peppers, and topped with a layer of griddled Oaxaca cheese that’s crispy on the top and melty and stretchy underneath.
