Tortilla chips fried in lard
While eating at Los Guanacos, a Salvadoran place in Mission Terrace (SF), I noticed that the tortilla chips were cooked in lard. Delicious and fried there daily. I'm not sure I've had, or at least noticed, tortilla chips fried in lard before.
Do other places (still) fry their tortilla chips in lard and do any fry in in-house rendered pig fat rather than those blocks and tubs of hydrogenated stuff?
if you find yourself on the eastside, try the chips at la Boriqueña across from la estacion de la policia, old oakland (7th st.). they also have very good chicarrones, the style with varying amounts of meat and extra fat attached, sold by the pound. these are about the best lard-fried chips you'll find in oaktown.
