DFW-Carne asada fries?
I've recently found out about something called carne asada fries.....seems they're a popular dish at taquerias in San Diego. From the description....I would liken them to Snuffer's cheese fries, with carne asada and guacamole on top.
I looked on Wiki, and they said: Carne asada fries are a local specialty found primarily in San Diego, and Los Angeles California, but can also be found on the menus of Taquería-like Mexican restaurants in other parts of the American Southwest including, but not limited to, Sacramento, Fort Worth, and Tucson but is normally not a menu item in most "traditional" Mexican Restaurants
Fort Worth? Please tell me it's so. Has anyone had these, or seen these on a menu at a taqueria in DFW?
They are on the menu at the San Deigo Taco Shop. I'm not sure if they have a website, but they have 2 Irving locations, one in Dallas, and one in North Richland Hills. Its a local taqueria chain. They are 5.50 for a pretty big pile. The menu says they come with cheese, sour cream, and guac. If you go, check your order before you leave. I got all the way home before I realized that they had skipped the sour cream and guacamole and had skimped on the cheese. Needless to say, they sucked. I'll chalk it up as a mistake in the kitchen because every other time I have gone there I have enjoyed my tacos.
With a scan of about 10 or so restaurant menus in Fort Worth I did not see the dish on any menu. That is not to say you can not request the dish to be made. I would go with El Asadero (a place specializing in grilled steaks) on North Main over in Fort Worth. They do have steaks (obivously) and they also have fries (papas).
