Tortilleria Ramirez: The Best Carnitas Taco In Lexington?

April 29, 2010

The meat is unctuous, full of flavor, and the cilantro onion garnish fresh and bright. With the addition of the sauce of your choice: verde, roja, or habanero (yellow, red and clear bottles respectively), The best taco in Lexington needs but one assist. The Coca-Cola in a glass bottle. Known as Mexican Coke, sweetened with cane sugar, it adds just the right carbonated counterpoint to the salt and fat.

We’ll be returning to Ramirez for our post on their fresh tortillas.

    Great blog! I love Tortilleria Ramirez.

    Tortilleria Ramirez also makes great tortillas FRESH everyday. There’s nothing like buying a few packages of these, bringin’ ’em home, and wrapping them around some home-smoked chicken or pork. You can cut up the tortillas and make your own chips too.
