Editorial Review of
Puesto Mexican Street Food
Puesto Mexican Street Food is bringing street cred to the La Jolla scene. And they’re upholding upscale standards while doing it. The menu gives the power to the people with a walk-up griddle and made-to-order dishes using all-natural ingredients. And while street-style is the thing here, they’re not skimping on health factors. Dishes include local and seasonally organic produce, all-natural meets, grass fed beef, sustainable seafood, freshly made corn tortillas and six homemade salsas. The form of your food at Puesto is a game of mix and match, make-it-your-way served in either tacos, bowls, or salads. Each is filled with guisados, grilled protein and gourmet vegetarian options. Go meaty with carne asada, chicken, fish or shrimp al pastor; Eat fresh with the grilled salmon filet for salads and bowls; Or step out of comfort zones to more traditional takes with Huitlacochoe, zucchini flower, potatoes with soy chorizo, or mushrooms with Guajillo chile.
