Roasted Sweet Potato Al Pastor taco at Authentaco.

Authentaco took over one of La Pasadita’s three Wicker Park locations (don’t worry, two are still directly across the street), and while it was slightly sad to see a former institution replaced, Authentaco is trying much, much harder. Take the roasted sweet potato al pastor (a weekly special), which features guajillo-marinated sweet potatoes and caramelized onions, served on wonderfully thin corn tortillas made to order, and topped with some seriously spicy tomatillo salsa.

Authentaco replaced on of the three La Pasadita locations at Ashland and Division, and I'm glad it did. The tacos aren't necessarily better, but they're more creative. This is a welcome addition to Wicker Park's cheap eats scene.
