If the words maciza (solid), cuerito (skin), buche (stomach), oreja (ear), tripa (intestines), lengua (tongue), or surtida (mixed) mean anything to you and your taco, you're in luck.
Con Sabor a Mexico: Carnitas Estilo Michoacan (542 SW 12th Ave., Miami) is open for business seven days a week 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
According to owners Mariana Camargo and Andres Tovar, their Little Havana shop is the only place you can find authentic, traditional, Michoacan-style carnitas in Miami-Dade County outside of Homestead.
We'd like to believe there are more out there.
Andres, a Cuernavaca native whose parents are from the tiny south-central Mexican state of Michoacan admits that in the 5 years he's been in Miami he has seen area Mexican joints spike from 2 to 15.
Little Havana alone is now home to several Mexican restaurants.
