Tuesday’s Are For One Thing – Tacos

Seriously, who doesn’t love to sink their choppers into a delicious, freshly made taco or other scrumptious Mexican food? Taco Tuesday in La Jolla is easily affordable and convenient. If you’re thinking, “Yeah, but I bet…” let me stop you in your huaraches, amigo, because though reasonably priced, you’re still getting great quality food. Let’s take a peek at some of La Jolla’s best places to grab a bite to eat.

Screen Shot 2017-07-21 at 2.22.19 PM

Puesto Mexican Food 
Puesto first appeared on the scene in lovely La Jolla (now with a great second location at The Headquarters) advertising itself as fresh Mexican street food. Puesto has lived up to this distinction by serving up fresh and ever tasty Mexican food. Puesto is the definitive must try, as their signature tacos are crafted with a layer of crispy melted cheese topped with your choice of favorite proteins and fixings on a handmade tortilla. Puesto also recently opened a sit-down full-service restaurant located right next door to the original and more casual Puesto on Wall Street. The sit-down menu offers exclusive and various items than that of the causal location along with a full-service bar. Puesto is a fantastic place for lunch or dinner or simply for enjoying your fave adult beverages and delicious appetizers with friends or family. Due to their ever fresh ingredients, Puesto tacos will set you back a mere $12 for three tacos, but hold on just a sec, friendo, if you ease by during Taco Tuesdays they are only $2 per! Taco Tuesday at Puesto, a can’t passer upper! Puesto is located at 1026 Wall St.

The Taco Stand 
The Taco Stand is a relative newcomer but nevertheless a fast growing favorite among locals. So what sets them apart from all the rest, you ask? Well, for starters they offer al pastor the authentic way — on a vertical spit. In addition, all meat is of the highest quality and they also make their own hand-made tortillas. Oh! And they offer a decent amount of authentic Mexican sides such as corn on the cob with parm cheese, mayo and chili powder. Inspired by the taco stands of Tijuana and their adventures along the Baja peninsula, The Taco Stand features Mexican flavored popsicles (oh, yum!), refreshments, and imported beer. And if you’re lucky, the churro machine might actually be cranked up and diners can get their dessert on with freshly prepared Rosarito-style churros! The Taco Stand is conveniently located at 621 Pearl St.

Verdes 
Verdes, a.k.a. “The Ranch,” as locals refer to it, has been a La Jolla establishment since WW II era 1945. This sit-down restaurant serves up authentic and traditional Mexican dishes passed down through the family such as Chile Rellenos, Carnitas Michoacan, Pozole, Enchiladas, Burritos, and Tamales, as well as fresh salads, tasty tostadas, and soups. Be sure to stop by during happy hour Monday through Friday from 3 ‘til 6 p.m. and titillate your taste buds with one of their all the rage tequila margaritas. Verdes is easily located at 7404 La Jolla Blvd.

Jose’s Court Room 
If you’re looking for a casual Mexican food stop with panoramic ocean views, family friendly dining, as well as late night drinks and entertainment, then look no further than Jose’s! Established in 1956 and family owned, Jose’s has a delightfully fun beach vibe with seating either indoors or outdoors in the ideal La Jolla climate. Gnosh on a delicious burrito and chase it down with a cold brewski all the while chillaxing and taking in the scenic views of the Cove from the outdoor patio. Coming in from the beach? No worries, shirts are entirely optional. Jose’s is easy to find at 1037 Prospect St. in beautiful La Jolla.

La Jolla Juice Bars We Love

pexels-photo-109275

Looking to launch your health kick this summer? La Jolla is the perfect town to do so!

Stop in for an ice-cold green juice from one or more of these insanely-awesome juice bars in La Jolla.

Juice Kaboose
7556 Fay Ave
La Jolla, CA 92037

What we recommend: The Green Lemonade. For over 20 awesome years, Juice Kaboose has been offering La Jolla residents and visitors alike with a healthy abundance of lip-smacking green juices, and their Green Lemonade is certainly no exception. Created with fresh apple juice, fresh lemon juice, ginger, spinach, cucumber, celery, and honey, Green Lemonade is an energizing choice for any La Jolla day when you’re seeking a refreshing juice to chill with. And hey, as an added bonus, the blend of honey and ginger fuels the body’s immune system and fights off any of those nasty toxins that may be coursing through your body.

Lean and Green Cafe
7825 Fay Ave, Suite 180
La Jolla, CA 92037

What we recommend: The Ultimate Green. Lean and Green Cafe’s Ultimate Green juice is prepared with all organic ingredients, including apple, celery, cucumber, and spinach. Spinach is bursting with wall-to-wall antioxidants and vitamins A, C and K. Oh, too high-cal you say? Not. The Ultimate Green remains a low-calorie, healthy green! This particular drink is perfect right after surfing or after an intensive yoga session, so ask for one for your “ultimate” cool-down.

Nekter Juice Bar
834 Kline Street
La Jolla, CA 92037

What we recommend: The Greenie. This is Nekter’s signature green juice. Made fresh to order, this juice is an invigorating assortment of parsley, spinach, kale, celery, cucumber, lemon and apple for a hint of sweetness. Parsley is a particularly favorable ingredient, because it acts as a cleansing agent by promoting optimal kidney function. The Greenie’s ingredients are rich and contain appetite suppressant veggies.

Juice Crafters
935 Silverado St
La Jolla, CA 92037

What we recommend: Green #2. Juice Crafters takes pride in their cold-pressed juices and on-the-spot made-to-order smoothies and bowls – and for excellent reason! Greener #2 is a cold-pressed concoction of kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber celery, apple and lemon. Rife with vitamins A, C, E and K, this juice has the perfect purifying properties that make it a fantastic and satisfying post-work out drink.

So drink up! Here’s to good health not just in the summertime, but all year around too!
