    I can’t believe there aren’t mini donuts in the ice cream! I’d be so mad if I bought that.

  2. I remember you or Jake mentioning Carintas Las Michoacanas when we went on the wing crawl….must must gooooo.

  3. I guess the comment I put in earlier was eaten in cyberspace. 🙂 So here it is again!

    Wth man, why even call it donut ice cream then. Lame.

    Bert and I need to go to Carnitas Michoacan. Soon. Heh heh.

    About the fried pig ears…it’s funny how all of these hipster places are serving it and people are eating it now that it’s ‘trendy’ to eat the whole animal when before it would have been, “Ewww gross”. I remember buying some before at Asia Cafe (I think they still sell them; they’re in a ziplog bag) not knowing what they were, then finding out what they were. There are some Filipino places where you can buy those too. Too bad the ones you had were too salty, but at least you tried it. 🙂

      I was baffled that there were no mini donuts! It felt like such a letdown and just a marketing ploy to trick me into buying that ice cream. I guess it worked. Boo.

      Yesssss, you need carnitas. They have a location in Chula Vista but not sure where, I saw it in their website.

      Jake still thought it was gross haha, I never thought to try it in particular. I’ve seen it when we’ve had whole roast pigs before. Usually I only think of pig eats as those dog rawhide treats. I was sad that it was uber salty, oh well. Maybe I’ll get to try it sometime again.
