Buenos Dias. In San Diego for a little USD volleyball (go Toreros!), the fam took a lunch break in the city’s cozy-quaint-cool Gaslamp District. I was told by a fellow LWDer that I HAD to visit La Puerta.
Since this is a Quick Bite post, I’ll be brief: spicy, succulent, intoxicating. My green enchiladas had a potent kick, and the green chiles that came with them were delightful – I’ve never tasted anything like them. My husband enjoyed his breakfast burrito, and one of my kids said she’d be at La Puerta everyday if they had one in Long Beach, very pleased with her Carne Asada fries.
They serve brunch on the weekends until 2:00 with $2 mimosas and $5 bellinis. Just note that no one under 21 is allowed inside after 3:00 pm, but that’s okay. Just have the kiddees chill on the curb outside so you can enjoy La Puerta’s happy hour (3:00-7:00 daily) in peace.
