About Carnitas El Momo

Carnitas El Momo is a local staple in Los Angeles, giving taco fiends a delicious way to satisfy their taco cravings. As you may have guessed, the food truck's specialty is carnitas, but you'll never guess how this taquero perfects this tenderized pork meat.

Most taco trucks grill all of their meats equally. But Romulo "Momo" Acosta is an artisanal carnitas master, learning the tricks of the trade from his father back in Salamanca, Guanajuato: pork is simmered for hours inside a large copper pot until the meat is sufficiently supple and packed full of authentic flavor. It's a family tradition, passed down from generations of talented cocineros, including Momo's own daughter who runs the food truck herself. So track down Carnitas El Momo; it's a good excuse to pig out and stuff yourself with some primo pork tacos.
