Had lunch today at Tuetano down in San Ysidro. Like it, would definitely go back. It’s not close but the food was good
2 tacos + beans
Let’s take a look at the quesabirria taco. Tender birria with cheese, birria juice and the ubiquitous onions and cilantro. I would definitely order this again.
Carne Asada Quesadilla was pretty yummy. Carne asada was a little too salty BUT the flour tortilla was fabulous. It was stretchy, chewy and full of flavor, plus it had been grilled on a flat top giving it some nice crusty areas.
Tuetano means bone marrow in Spanish. Here’s the name sake bone marrow. The portion is not huge but with a squeeze of lime it was sublime.
Tuetano is small, maybe 20 seats, and very casual. The menu is small and posted on the wall. Tacos, quesadillas, tostadas filled with birria, cochinita pibil or carne asada. Prices are totally reasonable. I think the highest price on the menu was $7. Thumbs up for this one.
