De La Torre recently relocated to San Diego from Chicago with no immediate plans to open a restaurant. “Instead of learning to surf, relax, write books about real estate investing, I decided to open a taco shop,” shares De La Torre.
After getting to know the community in National City, Puros Tacos Cabrones will expand their menu past tacos to include elevated Mexican cuisine with a mix of street foods familiar to the area.

The Hillcrest spot will highlight the urban ambiance and play to locals’ particular tastes with menu items like California burritos and carne asada fries.
