Guess where I'm eating?

Depending upon which region of Mexico you happen to be stuffing tacos down your throat, the pot-steamed, greasy and golden corn tortillas folded with different meats posing in the above snap are called tacos al vapor, tacos cazuela, and, in Mexico City, tacos de canasta, which you can buy for next to nothing from just about every mobile food vendor on the street.

There are a few taco shops in and around Denver where you can get steamed tacos, but these are by far the best I've found, and they're sold in the most unlikely location, which I'll tell you about just as soon as someone chimes in with the correct answer.

Can you guess where I'm eating?
