Popular Puesto in La Jolla a fresh fast/casual approach to Mexican street food. Tacos, salads and bowls are filled with meats and veggies ranging from chicken al pastor and carne asada to grilled salmon, potato soy chorizo, and zucchini and cactus.
From the restaurant's website:
"We make our tortillas from stone ground maize and we cut, blend and flavor our salsas daily. Our meats are all-natural, our seafood is sustainable, and it is all prepared in-house. Most importantly we offer the best flavors of Mexico in all of our foods, and source each item with the best ingredients."
"Don’t be afraid of the cactus — the nopales asados are bright and earthy. And be sure to try the signature flor de Jamaica — hibiscus flowers with chipotle spices that pack a smoky, floral punch, as well as a bit of heat. I wanted to spoon this over every bite of protein — it goes so well with mammal, bird or sea friend."
