      A friend of mine had a fundraiser in Long Beach and used Tacos Soto (714-826-1903). He said that the price was very reasonable. The tacos (chicken, beef, and pork) tasted great and were a big hit. There were two women making the tacos and they kept the tacos coming at a quick pace for some big eaters.

        From the title of your post I was imagining your having little baby Barbacoa after the naming was done.

          Carnitas would make a lovely girl's name! Seriously, is a baby-naming a secular christening? As for tacos, Mrs. Garcia's in Culver City caters. It's not the most authentic, but it's very tasty, and when they catered some work functions they were very efficient and friendly. There was more than enough food and it was hot and fresh.

            Ususally a Jewish ceremony, when you give the baby a Hebrew name. So Tacos and Torah should be an interesting combination!

          Birria is also a lovely name. LOL...

          What you're after is called a *taquiza*.
