Paz Cantina offers inexpensive, casual-dinner-on-the-go food. There are no esoteric ingredients or surprises in its Mexican cuisine, which specializes in tacos and tortas. The carne asada taco is fine, with tender grilled steak sprinkled with onion and topped with a radish slaw. The restaurant’s signature pork belly taco offers a big, gristly lump of fat clinging to crispy, tender pork and dressed with pickled cabbage and papaya. Chicken flautas are crisp and perfect, and the guacamole is nice. A taco made with strips of cactus should be avoided.
