La Calaca Feliz Is Working for Fairmount

Adam Erace reviews Fairmount Avenue’s La Calaca Feliz, the Mexican bar from Cantina Feliz/Distrito vets, Tim Spinner and Brian Sirhal. What Erace finds is a spot perfect for the Fairmount neighborhood and carnitas tacos worth devouring.

Panes of crunchy skin and pockets of unctuous fat lurked in each bite of slow-cooked, pan-crisped pork, so primal and satisfying I was stoked to see it again, mingling with chorizo, short rib, ancho-spiced tomato sauce and a bubbling blend of cheeses atop the tlayuda campechano, Mexico’s version of a meat lover’s pizza on house-made corn tortillas.
