Carnitas El Michoacáno

Calle Pescador y Panga
Cabo San Lucas , Mexico

Famous for its carnitas (slow-roasted pork), this casual, open-air taquería is part of a small national chain established in Michoacán in 1899. At this location, the pale orange building has open archways lined with potted ferns, as well as white plastic furniture, an open kitchen, and a tortilla-making station. The carnitas is sold in tacos, topped with chopped onion and cilantro, or by the kilo, with homemade tortillas, beans, and fresh salsas. Also available are chicharrones (fried pork rinds) and tacos of loin, ham, rib, shoulder, or rinds. On Sunday, the restaurant hosts live norteña (Mexican folk) and mariachi music.
