We’ve always been more about the burritos and nachos so we actually haven’t explored carne asada fries too much. We’ve heard that Lolita’s makes the best carne asada fries in San Diego. DH and I had visited once previously and while we had loved the crispy fries, the carne asada had been a salt mine. Looking back, this might have just been a fluke as we had come around closing time.
On this visit, we could definitely understand why people love the carne asada fries here. The fries are thin and crunchy. A lot of other renditions have soggy fries. The carne asada was well seasoned and it had was also served with guacamole and cheese. A lot of places don’t include the guacamole but I think it adds a refreshing relief from just meat and cheese.
Our friends also ordered a shrimp quesadilla which they had heard good things about. I didn’t get a chance to try it but they liked it.
I’ll definitely be back again for the fries and to try the quesadilla. Are there any other favorite spots for carne asada fries I should be trying?
