  • In Eagle Rock, this charming neighborhood restaurant is many things: a deli, a market, a breakfast spot, and a Mecca for one of the best dishes in town, the duck carnets taco. Featured at Tacolandia!
  • Cacao has a fairly open mind on what might go into a taco. They make carnitas out of duck. Other ingredients include sea urchin, hibiscus flowers and huitlacoche.
  • Try the Potato taquitos
  • LA Weekly's '10 Best Dishes of 2010' - Duck Carnitas!
  • Corn truffle tacos are the truth. Before you die, you need to eat like, 30 of then. Add that to your bucket list sheeple.

  • Parking in the back. Cute little place. Very diverse crowd. Interesting though a bit intimidating menu. Yummy though :). Horchata love love love !
  • I like their hibiscus (flor de jamaica) tacos best, followed closely by the shrimp, duck carnitas, fried potato, and cochinita pibil tacos. Be adventurous: nearly everything on the menu is terrific.
  • Nice local place for exceljent food. Great coffee choices.
  • Life's simple pleasures. Potato tacos just like Mom used to make. Thank You Cacao Mexicatessen...we're proud to be on your shelves.
