Best Tacos de Lengua

La Fresita

Slip us some tongue! A good tongue taco--hell, any tongue taco--can be hard to find. If you're not a tongue-eater, get over it already; you're missing one of the two best parts of the cow. La Fresita offers fresh, real-mom-style cooking (if your mom was a really good cook), with hand-patted corn tortillas that don't exist until you've ordered. The seasonings are bright and fresh, and the slow-cooked meat is moist and delicious. Now if they would only make gallina pinta, the famous Sonoran tail stew, from that other best part of the cow, we'd be in heaven.
