The Carnitas Platter at Barra Barra, in San Diego, CA.

Carnitas are typically made by taking pork shoulder, roasting it, and then broiling sections or chunks of it – all with exquisite and spicy seasoning, of course. This particular dish had guacamole and sour cream on the side, as well as the requisite refried beans and Spanish rice. It should be noted that the flour tortillas are made on the premises (a BIG PLUS in my book). The meal was very good, even if the carnitas themselves could have been a bit crisper.
