carne asada heaven
Redbird market and its owner laith arabo offers the southbay the best arechera carne asada .Their meat dept is excellent,the butcher enrique and the crew are knowleadgeable and courteous.They are an old school market where everybody knows your name and family.great place.
It was nice to find I can request for an item to be carried on a regular basis. They took the information and told me it would be a couple of weeks before they came in.
Los Reys corn tortillas made in Vista Californi. 100% corn, ingredients: Corn, water, lime I live on these things.
This is the "go to" spot in Clairemont for carne asada, salsa, tortillas and just about anything you need to have a Mexican fiesta at home. I always get my carne asada here instead of Vons. You can then get good torillas and real, fresh salsa for your tacos.
$20 at Trader Joes vs Vons
I did some comparison shopping with a $20 budget, I shopped between Vons and Trader Joe's, would you believe I got about 26% more at TRADER JOE'S ? Yes I did, items such as Milk, Orange Juice, Bread were actually cheaper, plus they always seem to be having those really generous demos, this time it was chicken and some type of black thai sauce , a perfect dinner for less than 4 dollars, and conveniently they were also giving out samples of their Apple Cider, to quench that spicy chicken, when last have you seen Vons doing that?! Also it breaks up the boring same things you always see offered at Vons, seems like Trader Joe's find unique products to keep you enticed!
