Las Fuentes - Carne Asada, Al Pastor or Carnitas

rowjo | Dec 13, 2007 11:25 AM

My friend is picking up dinner for us tomorrow night as Las Fuentes for our little pre-Christmas get-together. We've had food from there before and it was great! I am, however, trying to be as healthy as possible before I leave for Illinois for the holidays next week and start eating Steak and Shake, Snickerdoodles, Mom's chili and the like.

Thought if I maybe stuck to some simple tacos (with rajas of course) with some of the whole pot beans on the side, that woudn't do too much damage. The truth is, however, I don't really know the difference between carnitas, tacos al pastor and carne asada (first 2 are pork...latter is steak).

Which is the best of these three at Las your opinion? Also, which would be the leanest (can you believe I am asking this about fabulous Mexican food???)? I'm not really sure how each is prepared, so I thought I would ask.

Thanks for the feedback!


p.s. Have a business dinner tonight at Louise's Trattoria...thinking the grilled Tilapia Bruschetta (Pomodoro) will be the best bet for me in trying to stay healthy!
