With my move into my new place closer to Vista, you will see more reports from that area. One place I have been meaning to go back and report on is Vamos A Texacoco. What sets them apart from other taco shops is their menu. It’s all about the BBQ Lamb here and that is what you should be ordering. They also serve goat as well as huitlacoche ( corn mushroom or fungus) and zucchini flower quesadillas.
Vamos A Texaco is a nondescript strip mall taco shop on the exterior.

I ordered the mixed lamb meal, a combination of lean meat and fattier cuts,
Lamb Broth ~ Lamb broth, gabanzo beans, and tripe.
The order starts off with a lovely, rich cup of lamb broth. This has true depth of flavor.
Full order of BBQ Lamb ~ 1/2 lb of mixed lamb meat, tortillas, and accompanyments.
The mixed plate is the way to go, you get the gamey, soft, and moist bits and the lean pieces that add structure.
You can make little lamb tacos. ~ Lamb, cilantro, onion, and green salsa.
I made 4 hefty tacos with my order. The green salsa has a really fresh almost grassy flavor that goes great against the richness of the lamb and the cilantro and onions add texture. Tip ~ they are great dipped in the lamb broth.
At $10.75 this is an authentic, delicious, satisfying meal.
They also have whole lambs head if you are so inclined.
