Looking for authentic, mexican street food without spending a fortune? Check out Puesto located in the heart of La Jolla Village on Wall St. Puesto has a similar set-up and ordering style as Chipotle, but what makes Puesto unique is its menu. Puesto offers more authentic mexican options to add to your tacos or bowls including: cactus, zucchini flower, corn truffle, grilled salmon, grilled pineapple, and tinga (hibiscus, chipotle, onion salsa) to name a few. But don’t be alarmed, Puesto also offers standard mexican options (rice, black beans, salsa, guacamole etc.). Prices range from $7 to $12 dollars. Portions are larger than chipotle (more bang for your buck!).
Siren reccomendation: guisado bowl with grilled salmon, zucchini flower, cactus, tinga, pineapple, black beans, brown rice, sweet corn and a little guacamole!
