I don’t normally write blog posts about food. But I want to do you a favor. I just had the very best pork dish of my entire life. I wanted to tell you where to get it. I want to share this with you because I love you for being a loyal reader. So here it is. Mercado Restaurant on Cahuenga Blvd. in Los Angeles. Order Chef Jose’s Carnitas. A giant hunk of smoking pork that is kind of like your taste buds having an orgy on a beach with supermodels covered in bacon. I’m not even sure what that last part meant because I cant even think straight right now. This dish has my head spinning just thinking about it.
It was smokey, sweet, and had a kick all at the same time. I will never be the same. I am actually kind of angry at Jose because he ruined pork dishes for me for the rest of my life. None will compare I tell you. I actually ejaculated twice during my meal which was pretty awkward because I was sitting at the bar.
Mercado is a small little Tequila Bar. They have all kinds of cool brands of tequila to choose from and a pretty fun decor at the bar. If you are in the Los Angeles area then you don’t want to miss this spot. Do yourself a favor. Order the Carnitas.
