Regional food in a small town

It’s amazing what an opportunity writing restaurant reviews in a (relatively) small town can give me to learn about food. There are a lot of taquerias in Watsonville, and an outsider can easily view them as basically “just Mexican.” That’s a mistake, of course. These mostly small restaurants and food stands are distinguished by the regional origins of their owners–as well as their personal tastes. Yesterday I had lunch in a small taqueria on E. Lake St., where I had some exceptional tacos, wrapped in house-made tortillas. Today, I’m learning about Caribbean-style, smoked, slow-cooked meats called barbacoa, which was on their menu, and which I have to go back and try.
