Carnitas' Snack Shack — Embarcadero

Yes, it is about the carnitas, pork meat tenderized, braised, crisped on the outside, then pulled apart. The most wicked of temptations. And these guys do it so well. If you make it to happy hour (3-6 pm Monday to Friday), a carnitas taco will cost $5, with chips and salsa, plus a ton of guac and pico. Tuesdays they extend happy hour till closing time, at least 9 pm. And they have actual healthy tacos, such as the cauliflower (it comes with red cabbage, chipotle crema). The elephant in the room? You’re downing all this deliciousness at an outside bar right on the waterfront, watching the waters glisten at you 20 yards away.
