The name means "crazy skeleton," and while this Temescal taqueria has all the trappings of gringo Mexican Niman meats, soju margaritas, and sponge-painted walls theres more than a little authentic charm here. The crispy tacos rule (especially those filled with moist, stewed carnitas) and fresh-tasting salsas bite back. But whats really crazy about Calaca is its house-made flan, which is fantastic certainly a first for any taco joint anywhere.
