For the duck confit tacos, seasoned duck is slow-cooked until the meat is falling off the bone, then heaped on twin tortillas with pickled jalapeños, scallions, mango and cotija cheese. For the carnitas, Uno Mas smokes Duroc pork shoulder and tops the shredded meat with orange, radish, poblanos, roasted tomatillo salsa and cotija.
Uno Mas opened in 2013 at 1585 South Pearl Street, joining sister restaurants Gaia Bistro and Kaos Pizzeria on the block, all from owner Patrick White. And earlier this year, the Berkeley neighborhood welcomed Mas Kaos to Tennyson Street, which brought pizza and tacos together under one roof.
