Last year, I had the pleasure of partaking in the newly opened Puesto in La Jolla. After a year of success, they have added some new menu items, featuring some delicious additions to their already amazing menu.
The ordering system has been streamlined, with a choice of bowls and tacos. The order is still given to the kitchen, but the dry-erase menus have been eliminated. This change has made the ordering process a bit more efficient.
I decided that I had to order the carne asada bowl. It just sounded too good! The carne asada bowl is composed of steak, rice, cactus, beans, and a roll of their signature fried cheese. Topped with avocado and salsa verde, this dish was absolutely wonderful. And huge! Definitely something that I would order again.
My friend had the tacos, featuring two of the delicious carnitas, and one of the shrimp. The tacos were amazing! The carnitas were so flavorful and had an excellent combination of sweet and smoky. Topped with a mango salsa, these were incredible!
