Oakland-based Tacos El Último Baile was one of our favorite spots for Northern-style tacos on handmade flour tortillas when it was a roving food truck. So no shocker here: the Fruitvale brick-and-mortar is a winner. The al pastor is reason enough to ignore your responsibilities for the weekend and get to this spot. It’s caramelized and drips with smoky juices that soak into the tortillas. But even if you’re not an al pastor enthusiast with a trompo sticker on your water bottle, the carne asada is also worthy of your attention. And you should keep an eye on their Instagram, where specials like fish tacos with a craggy crust or fragrant pozole rojo, are announced. The space is a simple set-up—order at the window, then choose your own adventure at the salsa bar. From there, it’ll take approximately two minutes before you text all of your pinned contacts and make plans to return.
