El Grullo Taqueria, Oakland, CA

We were determined to eat good Mexican food while in California, so on our last day there before we flew out of Oakland Airport, we found El Grullo Taqueria. 

The reviews on Yelp sounded delicious and were pretty funny (i.e. "ignore the crackheads in the neighborhood") and the place sounded exactly like the kind of hole-in-the-wall joint we were looking for.

I got the posole -- with huge chunks of pork falling off the bone, wonderfully red in color (though not overly spicy), it was just what I needed on a rainy Bay Area day. Redneckhunter got carne asada, served with hot corn tortillas.
