Last night, on a tip from my friend Eric, we went out to Pollo Vagabundo - which according to Google Translate means "Bum Chicken".
Nat had chicken tacos and said that they were some of the best tacos she's ever had. We also shared 4-5 salsas from their bar (they have probably a dozen to choose from), and they were all tasty. Spicy, but tasty. (thinking now....if they named the place after the chicken, perhaps I should have gone with chicken, too!)
The only hangup was the carne asada shortage. You see, about 10 years ago, I was introduced to La Pasadita on Ashland. ("no...not that one. The other one. The other one? Yeah....the one next door. Not across the street - Next door.") Once I had one of those beautiful carne asada burritos, there was no other wrapped treat that could compare.
Pollo Vagabundo was billed as having a burrito to-die-for, but because I had my mind set on carne asada and had to settle for shredded beef, I can't confirm that status. They also were said to be making their own tortillas on site, but alas, they weren't doing that either when we arrived.
Will we be back? You betcha. But...this time for lunch.
