My choice was the carnitas lean meat, a delightful option from the diverse world of Mexican cuisine. Carnitas, a dish composed of various parts of a pig slow-cooked in lard, offers an array of choices โ€“ mixed, lean, stomach, skin, or tongue. My order arrived generously stacked with succulent pork on a soft tortilla. A zesty squeeze of lime adds a unique tangy dimension, perfectly complementing the vibrant flavors of coriander, onion, and more lime. The meat, thick yet tender, is truly a revelation. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill taco. The trio of cilantro, onion, and lime masterfully cuts through the rich, savory goodness of the pork. For a grand finale, don’t miss out on the chorizo tacos. They’re the pinnacle of flavor and aroma. Save these gems for last and savor the fiery charm. These chorizo tacos boast minced meat, a delightful departure from the traditional chorizo ham, and they’re bursting with red spice. Add a squeeze of lime, and it’s akin to diving into a spicy ragu with a cilantro kick.

This spot serves flavors so authentic that even Mexican locals would feel right at home. It’s a must-visit if you crave the sensation of dining in a South American eatery right in the heart of Gangnam. My usual routine here involves indulging in a trio of tacos โ€“ it’s the perfect balance. Nestled near Samsung Jungang Station, a mere three-minute stroll from Exit 7, you’ll spot a small, unassuming Mexican gem. There might not be flashy signage, but the colorful facade gives it away, making it easy to spot at a glance.
