Las Morelianas Carnitas Estilo Michoacan

  • 3645 University Avenue, San Diego, CA 92104 | Directions
  • 619-521-2891

Las Morelianas is just into City Heights, but it feels much more removed than that. Everything is rough around the edges, from the construction to the service to the clientele. Not rough as in dangerous, rough as in working class, unpolished, or homegrown. It’s like the contrapositive to a chic yet humble barbacoa place like Aqui es Texcoco or El Borrego. With that roughness comes a low price of entry for excellent carnitas. The house special is a one pound serving for about $9, which makes an awful lot of tacos.
