so... i wanna grill up some pre-marinated stuff... which carnerceria should i go to? preferably eastside...
Don't know which part of the Eastside you're in, but if you're near the faux-Eastside (Silver Lake), I like the Busy B market on Virgil near Santa Monica.
Chowpatty, not to hijack the thread, but do you know of anyplace good around the Ontario/Upland area? Do you recommend Stater Brothers at all?
Sorry, no clue about that area, but Mexican markets are usually better for carne asada.
A big no on Stater Bros. The only 'big chain' I recommend is Food for Less... my parents get theirs there when in a pinch (They live in DB)
IMO the meat at Stater Brothers is the best, and always has been, among the larger chain stores. Also, a nice selection of cuts that other stores do not have.
Meat yes... but for pre marinated Carne Asada... nope...
How about near Monrovia/Arcadia?
Go to the below-mentioned Linda Rosa in Pasadena. At Villa & Allen.
Kings Ranch in Monrovia
In Pasadena try Linda Rosa Market. It's on the corner of Allen and Villa behind a liquor store. Great carne asada and really great marinated boneless chicken.
ended up trying this place, the linda rosa market. asada was great, as was the chicken. 9/10, highly recommended.
I actually like the pre-marinated carne asada from Trader Joe's.
So do I! It's actually really good, but I think a bit more expensive than you'll find at a small Mexican market.
I wish I was near a Mexican market, or at least a Trader Joe's! Can't wait to get back to LA.
Little further east in San Gabriel/Rosemead area is Los Toros Meats on the corner of San Gabriel & Valley Blvd. Excellent marinated carne asada and chicken for your BBQ or grilled in a pan.
I like the Kings Ranch asada in Monrovia on foothill.
