Carne Asada UnCooked

Where can I get some great uncooked carne asada, eastside or westside?

    1. Hollywood = Villa Lobos Market on Santa Monica Blvd, east of Western (opposite Jons), Also terrific pollo asada. First choice and worth the travel time.
      Northeast L.A. = the Super A's are pretty good for both carne & pollo asadas
      Fresh & Easy sometimes has pretty good carne asada, but a little pricier than above.

      1. In Pasadena, Dona Rosa Market on the corner of Allen and Villa. It's behind a Pueblas Tacos restaurant. Terrific carne asada and their pollo preperado is like eating candy.

        1. Try Don Felix Meat Market in Culver City. They have consistently good asada preparada.

          I've also had good luck with Carniceria/Taqueria Sanchez in Culver City.

          1. re: annapurna7

            Vicente Foods in Brentwood has it.

              So does Bob's market on Ocean Park.

              I also buy it regularly from Trader Joes, and my local Ralphs. We are big fans of carne asada.

          2. I fixed it last night. I use Ralph's marinated and prepackaged "Private Selection" brand in the meat case. It cuts easily into stir-fry strips without unfolding it first; just as it comes out of the package. You can then cut the strips into smaller ones. It's really the best outside of a Mexican fast food joint.
