Las Brasas in San Jose?

Carb Lover | Aug 19, 2006 07:06 AM

So in another thread on the General Topics board about what would a hound eat for a last meal, "jrsmoltz" replies:

I know it's 3,000 miles away, but I would have to have a supreme burrito with carnitas con nopales from Las Brasas in San Jose, CA.

I have never had a better burrito and probably never will. I was very lucky to live three blocks away from them for three years.


Those are some compelling words and that carnitas w/ nopales sounds so good right now. Did a search on CH and there were only a few posts that merely mentioned this place among many. No juicy details.

So what's the latest on Las Brasas? Sounds like the poster hasn't eaten there in a while. I'd also like to know what else might be good. Thanks!
