Tacos Alebrijes Is Bold
For the most part, the O.C. Weekly is right - Alebrije’s Grill deserves a large amount of praise. Their tacos are large, steaming affairs that come absolutely stuffed with your meat of choice. More than simple salted flap meat, the carne asada is deep and satisfying, with a lightly smoky undertone. You’ll get little salt packets on the side with your order, but heaven knows why. This meat is perfectly salted to really bring out the best in beefy flavors, and the toss on the plancha allows for a few choice bites of well-griddled goodness.
The cabeza taco is another winner, tasting fresh and light, without a lot of the gristle than can overtake a competitor’s cut of the fatty meat. There is still plenty of chew here, but pairing the taco up with a bite or two of soft, grilled nopales (cactus) makes for a perfect balance.
