Margarita at Cacao Mexicatessen

At first blush, CaCao Mexicatessen seems like it is one too many things—coffee shop, deli, market, restaurant. And yet, it all comes together and works quite well, owing, no doubt, to the strength of a menu that includes a few fantastic tacos. Chief among these is the carnitas de pato ($4.25). Duck is cooked in its own fat, then shredded and topped with slivers of radishes, pickled onions and avocado. Vegetarians can also can also get their fix with the flor de Jamaica taco ($3.10), filled with beet-red hibiscus flowers, guacamole, pico de gallo and cheese.

Cacao Mexicatessen has been serving up creative and delicious tacos for years and cemented their legacy as must-visit in Eagle Rock. You should definitely try their duck confit taco and their fish tacos are absolutely killer.
