Traffic moves at an antelope’s pace on National Avenue, so it’s easy to unknowingly whiz by El Comedor. Advice: Keep your eyes peeled for a corner building with a bright-red threshold, then head inside and place your order immediately for crispy, succulent shreds of pork (a.k.a., al pastor). The meat is sweetened with tiny chunks of pineapple. Ask for cilantro and onion on top, and be liberal with the fresh lime! Look for El Comedor taco truck on South 13th and Hayes.

The fire station theme is carried throughout the brick/hardwood two-floor venue (replete with engine-house memorabilia). Breakfast can be straightforward (eggs and bacon) or not (patacon con huevo). Engine Company’s yen for “international breakfast” is no surprise given its global-tapas-serving sibling La Merenda. Read more…

A decorative thread of 1980s neon and poster art filters through this offbeat Walker’s Point bar run by folks from Boone & Crockett and Vanguard. Tater tots, sliders, Radskis salad, cheese fries and Brussels sprout salad are all worth snacking on.

Seasonal cuisine incorporating local foods is the mantra of this beautifully restored occupant of Walker’s Point’s “Restaurant Row.” The steamed pork buns are a must. Also offers hands-on cooking classes.

The Spanish-influenced plates are small, but the flavors are not. The interior says ??reclaimed old Milwaukee storefront.?? Weekly live flamenco guitar, and flowing gin and tonics, say ??Madrid.?? Pair all that Espana with croquetas (fritters), meatballs, tostas (open-faced sandwiches) and paella.
