One of your first sights upon entering Carnitas Don Lucho is the counter. Yes, there’s an unseen kitchen in this space, but at the counter where you place your order, you will marvel at the glistening pork carnitas, the butt cooking right there, hunks of which are lopped off and sold by the pound. The tender confit-like meat is akin to manna folded inside large, fresh corn tortillas. Drizzle fresh lime and Lucho’s smoky pasilla chile salsa (one of up to six sauces) over the meat. The taco doesn’t need much more to enhance the flavor.

The menu is divided into meat, seafood and vegetarian categories (the Celtic ??triskele?? symbol has three interlocked spirals). The restaurant is a tad south of Walker??s Point restaurant developments, and that gives it sleeper status. A terrific place for mussels (the Tuesday-night special), burgers and create-your-own mac and cheese.

Not your average taco filling. But Gypsy Taco isn’t your average maker. The truck – I guess you could call it more of a trailer – lives on the Boone & Crockett patio and services that bar’s barrel-aged cocktail drinking crowd. The Gypsy himself, Mitchell Ciohon, uses his fine-dining background to infuse his offbeat tacos with some razzle-dazzle, so expect drizzly schmears and garnishes of things like whipped goat cheese, toasted pumpkin seeds and arugula salad. His juicy-decadent shredded pork (the soda braising liquid leaves a mildly sweet finish) topped with cabbage, jalapeño, sliced radish, homemade pickles and a jigger of aioli – holy flavor burst! Add the extra creaminess of queso for $1. That’s what the Gypsy calls “Stallis-style.”

Pakistani cuisine tends to be rich and very flavorful. Anmol gets that message. Meat dishes like haleem (shredded beef), mutton kahari and the tandoori platters are of note.

In a city with as many Mexican restaurants as Milwaukee, Guanajuato Mexican Restaurant (2301 S. Howell Ave.) stands out by blending in.

Away from the drunken, mechanical pepper riding bachelorette parties of Fifth and National, GTO (as it’s affectionately known) occupies a small, nondescript storefront at the mega-intersection of Lincoln, Howell and Kinnickinnic avenues in Bay View. Read more…
