CK has been craving Mexican since the day he stepped foot in San Diego. We had delayed going for some because I was sick with the flu and couldn’t taste anything. Now that I'm better, it is his turn to be sick. However, he decided to delay it no further, and made the executive decision to go for Mexican tonight. We headed to the little taco hut down the road from our house, La Playa Taco Shop.
La Playa Taco Shop is a little family run business in Mission Beach that serves authentic Mexican with no fuss. Their specialties are tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and quesadillas. I asked the lady at the counter what she recommended, and she gave me a few choices: their most famous quesadilla is the shrimp one, people love their carne asada burritos, and the California burrito comes in a close second. They also make good carnitas that are not fried.
CK ordered the California burrito with beef. This was basically the same as my burrito except for the fact that the California burrito had fries in it!! It made the burrito especially filling, and I definitely preferred the no fries version. The fries just took up too much space, and didn’t add much to the taste.
