Huntington Beach Rec: Trejo's Mexican

Porthos | Aug 6, 201103:07 PM     5

After my 5th or 6th visit here I really have to recommend this place, especially for lunch on Saturday and Sunday.

Every Saturday and Sunday, they do an amazing roasted barbacoa (goat) which is tender and flavorful. I usually get a combination platter of the tender and moist carnitas and the aforementioned stellar barbacao which comes with rice and beans. The housemade chips and salsa are also excellent and addictive.

The soups and stews are also top notch here. As we speak, I'm feasting on a perfect pork neck bone soup which has tremendous flavor...and I'm trying, albeit unsuccessfully, to save the rest for dinner since I already polished off a combo carnitas and barbacoa plate only 30 minutes prior.

Skip the tacos and burritos. Come for the barbacoa and soups before you hit the beach or after a long day at the beach. It is really good eats. I would recommend lunch because the barbacoa is more plentiful and fresher. It tends to run out by dinnertime.
