Puesto – San Diego

Puesto at the Headquarters is one of the spots to go for Taco Tuesday.  They have a great special going there for their Tacos, where they are $2.50 each, and a little extra if they are the specialty tacos.

img_0751 The kitchen is open to see them assemble their food.img_0748Quite a casual atmosphere. img_0750 They make their own Azul Tortillas, with the blue corn, right on the spot.img_0749 OK, taco time!

I went with the Lobster, which had an entire claw in it, along with Fried Onions and a Cilantro Crema and Avocado. Nicely done, the lobster and the crunch from the onions was nice.

To the right of that is the Grilled Seabass with Red Cabbage.  A little less impressed with this one, as it was a bit overdone.

On the right is their taco of the day, which was a Chipotle Pork Tinga. Braised Pork Shoulder, Chorizo, Potato, Chipotle, Avocado, Cilantro, Queso Fresco and Chicharron. This was awesome!  So tender and the flavors altogether were just great.img_0746 I went back for a fourth!  The Filet Mignon with a Pistachio Crema.  The rest of the table raved about it, me, while the steak was tender, it was just ok for me.img_0747Lots of combos and Taco Tuesday is where it’s at!
