Welcome to Authentaco, 1141 N. Ashland Ave. in Wicker Park. Felipe Caro brings tacos back to the former La Pasadita space in this "sleek" and "casual" spot, which features a menu of traditional and vegetarian favorites like chicken al pastor tacos, elotes and huitlacoche--also known as "corn smut". Expect homemade tortillas and aquas frescas. Find chicharrones con salsa roja, rajas con queso (roasted poblanos with melted Chihuahua cheese) and carnitas con aguacate on a revolving menu, and find doughnuts and churros at a pop-up window from 6 a.m.-10 p.m. daily, as well as a foosball table and seating for 30.
