On the far Eastern fringe of the 9th Ward sits La Popular, a grimy redoubt of Hispanic dried goods, meats and sundries.
They’re not carrying anything you can’t get at plenty other grocers located closer to downtown New Orleans but the little taqueria sitting in a side-room is worth a visit for the barbacoa alone.
The tacos there are tiny, taquitos technically but the cocinera running the little cafe has cow head-cookery running through her veins.
