El Comal is a spacious, shiny taqueria and jugueria with one long kitchen open to the room, where a woman is stationed at the grill, patting out all manner of antojitos. She reaches into her huge vat of masa dough to fashion a steady stream of sopes, picaditas (similar to sopes, in that they are disks of masa with pinched-up sides, the better to hold the toppings), quesadillas, and huaraches. The huarache with chorizo is a marvelous rendition, the fresh masa turnover spotted with char, and stuffed with a thin layer of purple-ish black bean paste. There are also tacos with the standard fillings, tortas, cemitas, and a handful of seafood and meat dishes. Weekends seem like the best time to go, since that's when El Comal simmers up mole de panza (belly), and pozole, and offers all-you-can-eat barbacoa for $8.
