The secret to a perfect taco? The trick is balance. Here are
five that get it right. 1. Del Pueblo Café: Everything at this
hidden gem is a winner, but we especially love the shrimp tacos
alambres. 5134 Hollister Ave., 692-8800.

2. Lily’s Taquería: You can opt for the auténtico mollejo or
lengua, but we’re content with the tacos al pastor, with marinated
pork and pineapple. 310 Chapala St.

3. Taquería El Bajio: Their asada tacos are the most flavorful.
Order three. 129 N. Milpas St., 884-1828.

4. El Sitio: If you don’t have the belly capacity for one of
their monster burritos, the rajas, simple pasilla tacos, are always
just right. 138 S. Salinas St., 963-0171.

5. Super Cuca’s Taquería: The “super taco combo” fills your
plate with grilled veggies and carnitas. 626 W. Micheltorena St.,
