    I’ve been silent too long. Perhaps I just want it all for myself. We all know that Tierra Caliente has the best Al Pastor in the neighborhood and is up and running for some of the best in Chicago. In my opinion, I have never had Barbacoa that has come close to the Tierra Caliente. Despite all of this I have found a new favorite taco there. It’s called “campechano”, and has been on the specials board for some time now. As far as I can tell it’s just carnitas mixed with chorizo, though not just any carnitas. True to form, Tierra Caliente does it best, fresh daily, and in a huge cauldron! I like chorizo, don’t get me wrong, but depending on where it comes from, by itself it can be a bit too salty for me. But when they mix it with the sticky savory carnitas they have struck gold. But don’t tell them that, they may raise the prices. Don’t hesitate to message me if you want an eating companion, I’ll go there any day!

    laikom,

    Thanks for the tip. Are you sure that this item is available daily? I ask because Tierra Caliente only sells carnitas on Saturdays and Sundays. I've had lunch there several times recently (on weekdays) and there weren't any carnitas, But they did have lengua and cabeza available from the steam table pans.

    Now that you mention it, it's quite possible that i just happened to be there on weekends the last few visits. It always seems to be on the board. Perhaps i'll have to stop in tomorrow to see. I'll keep you posted.
