Tacos at Alamexo are served DIY fashion. A side here, warmed tortilla there and, in the case of the cochinita pibil tacos, a centerpiece of beautifully tender roasted pork. Marinated in achiote and bitter orange, the chunks of meat still feature delicate fatty morsels, meaning no matter how you choose to build your taco, it’s guaranteed to be a rich, flavorful creation.
