Carnitas and lengua tacos – El Patron Lonchera

Project 365: Day 64

I had to work in Oakland in the morning today so I stopped by one of the Mexican food trucks in West Oakland for lunch. One of my co-workers suggested El Patron Lonchera because they have tasty tacos and the food hasn’t made him sick yet, lol!

Carnitas and lengua tacos El Patron Mexican Truck

Two carnitas (pork) and two lengua (beef tongue) tacos on corn tortillas topped with red onions and cilantro. Served with pickled carrots, radishes, and jalapenos. Tacos $1.25 each. Diet Coke $1
El Patron Lonchera, Oakland CA

These were pretty good! Both tacos had great flavor and they didn’t get me sick, hehe. The beef tongue was in large chunks (yum) and the carnitas were nicely shredded with a few crispy pieces (double yum). The guy running the food truck doesn’t speak English so you either have to gesture or try and remember your pathetic highschool Spanish grammar!  🙂
