After spending a day at the wharf, my boyfriend and I were looking for something other than seafood. We were staying at a hotel on North Fremont, so we decided to venture out. La Tortuga was one of the first Mexican places that caught our eye! Outside, the restaurant looks run down, but the excitement came when I took a look at the menu!
They had many authentic choices. I ended up playing it safe and ordering a torta de asada. My bf ordered a huge burrito.
My torta was OK. Nothing great. The green salsa that came on the side was so tasty! It was super spicy, so a little went a long way.
My boyfriend's burrito was amazing. The grilled onions were such a tasteful touch!
Overall, the service was good, the place was clean, and the waitress was helpful. I would go back and try some of their more authentic food choices.
