San Diego got to experience that same brand of annoyance this week when the Times ran a much-criticized piece on carne asada fries—a dish as quintessentially San Diegan as sunshine, Rey Mysterio and cousins right across the border in Tijuana.

The dish is composed of carne asada atop a fresh pile of french fries with guacamole, cheese, crema and salsa fresca on top. Every mouthful is rich and messy in the best possible way.
