Outside Saint Francis of Assisi Church

On weekends when the weather is right, half a dozen temporary kitchens pop up on the sidewalk next to this University Village Catholic church to crank out an impressive variety of tacos, gorditas, tortas, tostadas, elotes, and huaraches with freshly pressed masa. Business is brisk and turnover high, so the food is always fresh. Wash it down with a rainbow of aquas frescas and finish with some frutas con chile y limon. It’s a mini Maxwell Street, minus the crowds and tube socks.
