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.

This sibling to Movida and Hotel Madrid puts a modern spin on the 1950s diner, with some classics and untraditional spins. Examples include the bananarama French toast, “naughty” angel burger, chicken pot pie and corned beef hash. Drinks range from boozy milkshakes to a spiked cereal cocktail. Breakfast is served all day.

 

I sense a trend. While Sweet Diner has brought a very un-dinery look and vibe to the Third Ward, Don’s Diner & Cocktails is offering up its “classic diner you crave” theme ‒ but without a more modern aesthetic ‒ in Walker’s Point. Read more…

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.

One late spring weekend, as the days were getting longer, the Gonzalez family debuted their delicacies made inside a shiny 1950s trailer, calling their business Mazorca Tacos. Their tasty bistec has three tasty going for it – the Wisconsin beer marinade, tender bean topping and delicious corn tortilla right there. Served with a zesty tomatillo salsa? Natch.

Vertical is the direction in which a burger moves. This Fifth Ward force takes the notion of layers well beyond the prosaic. It’s a little like Joan Rivers’ face. More, apparently, is better. But a few qualities stand out here – the ability to build your own burger from oodles of ingredients, and the Stack’d options for gluten-avoiders and vegetarians.

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.
