It's Raining Carnicerias

Shit. I was afraid that would happen.

A helpful poster in the Mr. Taco's thread advised me that I ought to check out the al Pastor at Carniceria Leon, located at 1402 N. Ashland. I had no idea that this place existed, even though it's within a 90-second walk from my apartment. I'm sure that I'd passed it before, but perhaps I'd assumed that it was some kind of spin-off of Carniceria Guanajuato, the formidable Mexican supermarket just up the block.

So I went out in the rain and ... well, Carnicera Leon is there. It isn't much to look at, but it's there, and it serves carnitas and al Pastor but not chicken, which makes it kind of bad-ass. So we have little choice but to include it in our bracket, where it will move into an "eat-in" match with Dona Naty's Taco for possession of the #12 seed.

Wait, where's the matchup for Mr. Taco's? This is getting confusing...

Mr. Taco's remains the #13 seed, where it just lost to #4 seed De Pasada (we'll have the review up in a moment).

Nate -- glad you decided to check out Carniceria Leon. There's some helpful info (and pics) in the thread linked below, including some tips on when it's best to check out the al pastor.
