Carnitas snack shack is located in the Northpark neighborhood of San Diego. Chef owner Hanis Cavin and partner Sara Stroud started this pork haven last year and serve slow food to die for!
We tried the carnitas tacos with avacado and salsa fresca. Beautifully grilled and seasoned carnitas with crispy burnt ends and gobs of delicious pork with the right amount of fatty goodness! Comes with a side of sweet creamed corn.
Chef Hanis Cavin has a distinguished bio with stints at Pacifica Del Mar, Kensington Grill and Chive. He let us sneak into his tiny kitchen and proclaimed … “I love pork”! The man’s passion shines through his simply cooked and locally sourced food. Long live the pig! Highly recommended.
