Dos Chinos Is Using Calamari To Change The Carne Asada Fries Game

Carne Asada fries are already one of the ultimate drunk foods out there. Now, they’re getting an EPIC seafood upgrade.

For the Marketplace at Foodbeast’s own festival this weekend, Meat Street Presented by the Makers of SPAM Brand at MainPlace Mall, the Asian fusion masterminds over at Dos Chinos are whipping up their own version of carne asada fries, forgoing the traditional French fry and substituting it with strips of tender, fried calamari.

The calamari is beer-battered and fried to a golden brown before being topped with cheese, avocado crema, Angus carne asada, and a Southeast Asian salsa that brings some fresh flair to the affair. Together, it creates a version of Carne Asada fries that is totally suited for Meat Street.

So after you’ve gotten your tickets, make sure to locate Dos Chinos and snag some of these next level Calamari fries.

It’s gonna be a dish to talk about, that’s for sure.


Carne Asada Steak Fries

Get your happy face on! We’re looking at crispy steak fries, layers of cheese, chopped Carne Asada, a heavy dollop of fresh homemade guacamole and pico de gallo throughout. Our friend Gaby’s recipe is so easy to put together even the most unenthusiastic kitchen user can get this dish put together. I like the idea of baking the potatoes with a nice seasoning, makes me feel a little less guilty about eating a “Carne Asada Fries” dish. Eat on!



Pic of the Day: Carne Asada Fries

I can’t speak for the rest of the country, but for Southern California, mainly LA, OC and SD areas, Carne Asada Fries from your favorite locale are always a proper way to spend time after midnight. What are they all about? Well, the above picture is taken from a plate served up at an Alberto’s location in San Diego, and what you see is a bed of french fries, covered with carne asada, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, and a whole lot of DAAAMMMMMN.
