Carnitas tacos at Porchetta
Porchetta has been tinkering with a taco special, using their signature porchetta to make carnitas. They’re topped with diced onion, cilantro, and salsa verde and served on locally-made tortillas, though they said they plan to make their tortillas in-house eventually. I would’ve preferred a lime wedge instead of lemon, and the tacos on the pricey side ($7 for two), but the salsa and carnitas were great. I always love finding good tacos in NYC, especially in my home-away-from-Williamsburg, the East Village.
Currently the tacos are only available on weekends, and they were not “officially” on the menu when I stopped in, so your best bet might be to call ahead or ask at the counter if they’re making them. Prepare for lots of questions and a few jealous looks from your fellow diners as you whisk these babies to your seat. Hat tip to Peter for the head’s up!
