Details

  • $
El Torito Nuevo is a Mexican restaurant in Orange. An order gets you a mound of shredded borrego, many chunks glistening with rivulets of fat at their edge. On the side, the waitresses gives you tortillas, onions, cilantro, salsa, and a bowl of consomé made from the lamb’s drippings and garbanzo beans. It’s up to you to decide how to eat the borrego (you can make at least six bulky tacos from them), but just eating it piece by piece, splashing just a bit of green salsa on each bite, is like munching on life itself -- intensely gamy, supremely soft, magnificent.
