Carnitas – Nopalito

Carnitas Nopalito

Tender pork braised in orange, bay leaf, milk, cinnamon and beer. $15
Nopalito, San Francisco

This is one beautiful packet of pork, NOMS!!!  The carnitas at Nopalito are so frickin’ good!  The meat is so flavorful and tender, it’s ridiculous!  You can smell and taste all the ingredients in the lovey braise.  The cut isn’t overly fatty, but I think that the fatty pieces were worth every calorie!

You might not be able to tell from the pic, but you get a very generous portion of carnitas. David and I could barely finish the order, granted we did eat a few other things. 🙂

The pork is served with a cabbage salad, pickled jalapenos and salsa de tomatillo, and warm tortillas for wrapping.
