# What to Eat at El Pelón, Opening in Brighton Tomorrow

After more than a year’s hiatus following the Peterborough Street fire of 2009, El Pelón Taqueria will reopen at its new digs in Brighton tomorrow at 5. We’ll have the photo reveal for you tomorrow, but in the meantime, feast your eyes on the menu, below. It remains to be seen whether the beloved caramelos steak taco will be as delicious in the new location, but here’s hoping!
