The tender and delicious lengua served at Licha’s Cantina is bound to convert even those who’ve historically been leery about the notion of beef tongue. The fresh and flavorful meat is slightly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, tossed into a spicy-sweet guajillo peanut salsa and showered with a confetti of onions and escabeche. Each order is presented on a cast iron skillet with soft house-made corn tortillas for you to fold on your own and season with their next-level salsas to your liking. On a nice night, there might not be a better place in town to sip mezcal and enjoy tacos than under their majestic live oak tree.
