Chorizoooooo!

NOTE Dec 15, 2010: Zaratez Mexicatessen now has a permanent residency in Kapahulu at 3121 Mokihana St, in the parking lot up the street from Waiola Shave Ice (heading makai on Kapahulu, turn left at Burgers on the Edge).

A two-taco plate from Paul Zarate’s Zaratez Mexicatessen lunch wagon (just $7, WITH a drink!). On the left carnitas, the right chorizo (instant winnah!). The carnitas seemed more like kalua pig than other carnitas I’ve had (wet and mushy instead of fried with crisp bits), but satisfying nonetheless, especially with all that Chinese parsley and the best locally made salsa I’ve ever had (bottle it). Ingredients are roasted first. Daily Disher Catherine Toth was in line with her family! Read her Nonstop Honolulu post to find out what she thinks of Zaratez). Zaratez Mexicatessen is on facebook.
