Cactus Taqueria

And you're not going to believe this, because Yo-Yo and Crawdad haven't seen each other in years.... In fact, I'm not even going to tell you.


My new favorite restaurant is Cactus Taqueria. There's one in Oakland and one in north Berkeley. That's the one I like, because that's where I lunched with a one-year-old after a grueling five-minute birthday shop for another one-year-old. Best thing about nannying: you always have someone with you to help finish a burrito. And if it's Clara de la Cooter, she'll finish all your hot sauce too. We were googy over the carnitas.
