Carnitas Worth the Wait
Meat lovers rejoice—Carnitas is home to some of San Diego’s greatest steak and pork dishes. Located in North Park, Chefs Hanis Cavin and Sara Stroud deliver mouth-watering plates like their Steak Sandwich, smothered in chipotle aioli, or their Pork Belly App paired with a sweet-spicy glaze. Vegetarians—don’t stray! They also offer a delightful Beet Terrine: local beets, goat cheese, and spinach topped off with a balsamic glaze. Stick it out in the long line, and it’ll be worth the gigantic portion of San Diego goodness in the end.
