The Taco Master of East LA – Street Food Icons

11

Published – 01/01/2020 2:00 pm

Based in the neighborhood of Boyle Heights in Los Angeles, people come far and wide for the tacos at family-owned Carnitas El Momo, and its beloved owner, El Momo.

The carnitas are made from pork which confit in pork lard and are made up of pork butt, stomach, and skins. These loaded tacos, topped with grilled onions and pickled vegetables, are a labor of love from El Momo, who learned how to butcher and prepare pigs in Mexico from his father before he immigrated to the United States to work as a welder. After sustaining a work injury, El Momo went back to his culinary roots and started making carnitas full time in East LA. Today, with help from son Billy, El Momo’s has won taco contests with dishes like migajas (burnt ends) tacos, and mulitas (similar to a quesadilla). El Momo’s legacy has no end in sight, and the family works hard to provide positivity and refuge for the community it serves.
