Mollejas at King Taco
- Low End Theory Jan 26, 2005 07:12 PM
Everyone knows about al pastor at King Taco, but as far as I know the mollejas/sweetbreads have not been mentioned here. At the East LA/Olympic branch they're great, a nutty, soft and delicious alternative to the regular taco choices. Incidentally, tres carnes are not translated on the English menu: mollejas, tripas y buche. Do they think non-Spanish speakers will dislike these tasty meats??!!!

Too bad more people don't try the buche - they'd love it, if they can take the fat. As far as mollejas, I wish I could find it up here in Sacramento.
IMO, as far as taco truck tacos go, lengua is usually the best bet - the least greasy of the cuts of red meat, and usually the richest and most tender.
