La Carreta Carnes Asadas
A glass window here lets diners survey the action. You’ll see succulent fajitas by the kilo joining platters of perfectly grilled chicken, ribs, sausages, and sweetbreads in what can only be meat harmony. And then there’s the house tortillas being patted out with industrial regularity, all the better to scoop up bubbling choriqueso spiked with pickled jalapeños. Enchiladas callejeras are rolled in chile and thick with queso, topped with griddled onions and carrots. Alhambres (shish kebabs to some) alternate charcoal-grilled sirloin or chicken with peppers and onions. Ignore the diet and save room for the blissful tres leches cake for dessert. Here, an authentic Mexican vanilla sauce brings new depth to this high-cal, high-val experience.
