Dec 21: Mexican Food in CA

Now that I'm rested from drive down to California. I have to have get my Mexican food fix.

This place came highly recommended for their carnitas. Carnitas is essentially twice-cooked pork. Pork is slowly braised until falling apart tender and just before serving the pork is fried to form a crispy outer layer.

What neat about this mom and pop supermarket is that the taqueria/deli is adjacent to the meat counter. To me, this implies all their food is fresh.

S had the carnitas taco.

I had the carnitas burrito. A burrito filled with carnitas, rice, refried beans and salsa.

The carnitas was delicious. A mild onion, garlic flavor without being overpowered by chiles.
