The couple behind Bombon Bakery are also behind this cheery taqueria, where the menu is made up of taqueria standards (spit-grilled al pastor tacos, gooey queso fundido with chorizo). A few items, such as lightly battered shrimp tacos drizzled with crema and spicy chipotle salsa, transcend the genre—especially Laura Cid-Perea’s famous tres leches cake, which is available here or at Bombon Café a block away.
