After a long day of new experiences Katie and I were hungry for some mexican food. And what better place to get some mexican food than in San Diego. Only minutes from the border into Mexico, San Diego has some of the best mexican food restaurants around. This time we were in La Jolla.
Katie’s aunt Sheri walked us to the main street. We were going to try Don Carlos Taco Shop which Sheri and Jim raved about, but when we arrive they were already closed. Guess they close early on Sunday evenings, around 7:00pm. Not to be discouraged or deterred from our mexican food, we headed toward the beach and found another spot.
The Taco Stand is super tiny local spot that was jam packed with people. You could barely move inside as you squeezed past other customers. The line to order was literally out the door and onto the sidewalk. We jumped into line without knowing if it was a new restaurant or if the others in line had been here before. We only hoped that the food would be as delicious as it seemed.
We ordered one pollo asada fries, a carne asada burrito, and two mexican ice cream bars. The wait was average for the size of the crowd they had and soon we had our food and were headed down to the beach eating our ice cream bars as we went. We got a little lost along the way, but eventually figured it out. We took a seat on the wall, ready to devour our food.
The pollo asada fries were heavenly! I couldn’t have asked for them to be done any better. Crispy fries topped with warm chicken, sour cream, avocados and gooey cheese. My mouth is watering just thinking about them now. And the burrito was so flavorful. Just the right amount of greasy goodness wrapped inside a tortilla. We demolished everything leaving not even one crumb behind.
The Taco Stand in La Jolla as absolutely great. I give it 2-thumbs up. It was so good that I’m sorry I wasn’t able to get pictures of our food to show here on the dark beach. Guess you’ll have to just go try some for yourself. I guarantee you’ll love it.
