Carnitas’ Snack Shack “celebrates pork, and celebrates it well…” — Ian Pike, San Diego Reader
I just tried the “poutine” the other day. It’s not strictly poutine in the French-Canadian purist sense, but there’s no doubt that the dish is excellent. With pulled pork, bacon, and white cheddar gravy ladled on top of seasoned french fries, Carnitas’ poutine is a pretty lively interpretation of the classic Quebecois dish of fries, brown gravy, and cheese curds.
The radness of the poutine speaks for itself. But, here’s the twist: it was only $8.
Were I, hypothetically speaking, to walk into any of the “craft-farm-to-table-sustainable-local” eateries that dot the Uptown landscape, I would expect to pay at least $12 for this dish. And I’d pay it, too. Not every day, but every now and again.
