If you live in San Diego or if you’ve come to visit San Diego, one of the best things you could ever try is carne Asada fries. This is like McDonald’s french fries on crack with a fusion of a Mexican style taco all mashed into one. It is one of my absolute favorites. Which, by the way, is probably one way the hubster got me to fall in love with him. Ha ha ha! Except this time there’s a new Mexican restaurant in our local mall here in the Bonita area. It’s called Plaza Bonita And the exit is Bonita Road. It’s one of the locals San Diego favorite place to go, and through the years, this place has expanded and have added many more varieties. Especially in the food court.
Throughout Plaza Bonita mall, there’s plenty of eateries and small food carts throughout your shopping. You can find Wetzel Pretzel, smoothie stands, your all-time favorite Starbucks, or you can get some fruit bowls with coconut shavings and whip cream on top.
No, I’m sure this one restaurant I’m about to mention has been in Plaza Bonita for awhile now. But we finally had an opportunity to eat it there. We’ve traded elsewhere in national city, and we’ve tried this particular dish at food trucks throughout southern San Diego.
Well today, we’ve decided to give it a shot and oh boy! Was it amazing! You have definitely need to try this place. There’s lots of choices, including the Cali Mex bowls, and fish tacos. There are about five different sauces you can pick from such as habanero, and guacamole sauce. They are both so delicious when you even combine them together.
Well, let me introduce you to the Birria Fries! This is fries with beef on top, but it’s not like any other beef. It’s called birria. A marinated beef that so tender it melts in your mouth. So the fries are topped with this beef, along with some refried beans, cilantro and cheese. When you put in your first bite, it’s like heaven in your mouth! It’s definitely feeling so you have to share. There are many other places out there with Carne Asada fries that I could recommend. This is the first time we’ve tried Birria fries in our local Plaza Bonita. So if you know a place that you’d like to recommend for birria fries, please let us know - we’d love to give it a try.
