Carnitas Snack Shack

Named for the owners’ beloved pet mini pig, Carnitas, the shack is exceptionally pork-centric. The menu (ten items written on the chalkboard outside) changes daily, depending on what’s fresh at the farmers’ markets that day. Open till midnight, and now with an expanded patio, the shack provides perfect post-drink nosh fare, such as the Pork Belly Hash Burrito or the triple pork sandwich (breaded pork schnitzel, pulled pork, and bacon, with pickle relish and shack aioli). Vegetarians are not entirely forgotten — there’s always at least one meat-free dish, such as the Stuffed Tomato (potato, onion, corn, carrot, zucchini, and more).
