La Carreta Carnes Asadas
The gritos here can be as lusty as appetites are hearty, and with good reason, especially if a strolling mariachi player is nearby. Standards and portions here are made for relaxed sweatpants (or your granddad’s Sansabelts). Stuff the house’s fluffy tortillas with choriqueso, thick with asadero cheese, chorizo, and sliced jalapeños. Bright red chile–enrobed enchiladas callejeras tightly enfold queso cotija and are dressed with griddled carrots and onions. Perfectly grilled fajitas, ribs, sausage, and sirloin are sided with onions and chiles and come in hefty kilo portions. Pace yourself for the devastatingly rich tres leches cake (you may swoon).
