La Carreta Carnes Asadas
Let’s not mince things (unless you’re talking picadillo): this place is all about the meat. Carnivores, this is your cathedral. If it has ever been grilled, it has been better grilled here. Whether you order by the plate or the sidesplitting kilo, you’ll want to make those pants elastic when visiting. Order this to go: Tacos al pastor gets you five corn tortillas of pork bliss, the meat steeped in guajillo and ancho chile and the joyful surprise of marinated and grilled pineapple. Garnish with cilantro and white onion and nothing can darken the day. Alhambres (a.k.a. most food groups on a stick) pack a real punch. Vary your kebab with hefty chunks of chicken, sausage, or sirloin bookended with grilled onions, peppers, and roasted tomatoes. And you get two, so have one for dinner and one for lunch the next day. Pro tip: The half-kilo meat option your pick of three (fajita, chicken fajita, arrachera, sirloin, and sausage) comes dressed for success with tortillas, rice, onions, and salsas.
