Awesome Carne Asada in El Sereno

I found the holy grail of carne asada on Eastern. La Tapatia, a little spot south of Huntington is beyond good. I've had others, but this joint is tops. They had a bunch of other stuff in the case, but I was on a asada hunt. If you go, ask for it "prepared." The guy runs it through a tenderizer and adds some simple spices and orange juice. That's it. Once I got home, I tossed a Moretti beer in the bag and let it sit a while before grilling. Another word to the wise, do not over cook it. It looses its juices.
