Past the butcher counter in the back of La Union Deli, there’s a small door to another room. As soon as you walk through this entrance, you’ll be greeted by two things: a large menu handwritten on oaktag and a snarling bobcat.
The bobcat is one of several pieces of taxidermy in Mi Pequeño Chinantla, a tiny Mexican eatery covered in knickknacks and specializing in tamales and guisado. The daily menu also rotates through various types of tacos, quesadillas, barbacoa, and picaditas (the latter of which are tiny corn cakes that get topped in salsa, onions, and queso fresco).
