Located on a residential side street in Boyle Heights, El Momo is a tiny trailer hooked to a white van. It’s also home to a kind of carnitas you can’t get anywhere else in town - a combination of pork shoulder and crispy skin. The result is a savory and crunchy taco you’ll think about in the shower.
