La Carreta Carnes Asadas
It should come as no surprise that a head-spinning selection of carnes asadas (grilled meats) is the house specialty, from chicken and fajitas to sausages and sweetbreads. Large portions (recall that a kilo is a measure of weight) challenge and may require stealthy table-side belt adjustments. Tortillas are patted out into fluffy clouds eager to embrace bubbling-hot choriqueso, with asadero cheese, knobs of chorizo, and sliced jalapeños. We’re big fans of the plump red chile–dusted enchiladas callejeras, tightly gripping queso cotija and all dotted with griddled carrots and onions. Pan-seared shrimp come blanketed with a grilled nopalito-tomato sauce. Complete your gluttony with an epically decadent tres leches cake, fetchingly drizzled in a Mexican vanilla sauce.
