I’m in the Northwest San Fernando Valley but will travel.
If someone can recommend a good place to get brisket for smoking (either whole or no smaller than 2 pieces), I would appreciate it. We’re looking for a good balance of quality and cost.
The places we have been getting Carne Asada for home cooking are either gone (RIP La Gardenia in San Gabriel) or just not as good any more - the nearest Vallarta doesn’t do a wet marinade any more. I don’t know if that is just locally, but on it’s best day, it was decent and not great in our opinion. Super King is better than Vallarta, but it seems like we should be able to do a lot better.
Thanks in advance for reading and thinking about this.
