El Grullense Drive Thru, San Jose, CA

Two Carnitas Tacos

Not to be confused with the Mi Grullense taco truck up in Oakland, this was a little drive-thru that I noticed on the way out of downtown San Jose the other day (400 West San Carlos, 408-275-6299). And a couple of tiny tacos were just the right portion size to keep us going until dinner.

They were fine, and tasted like they looked. Sure, I wish the carnitas were a bit crispier and the salsa a bit spicier. But I'm glad we came here rather than having to resort to one of those commercialized chains like Una Mas. I noticed some kind of a shrimp cocktail on their menu that might be worth a try next time.
