MENU

Big J -n- Lil’ J’s Carne Loca menu ain’t fancy or complicated. 

This helps us focus on our #1 Goal - Three dishes, to perfection, every time!


#1 Carne Loca Sandwich - A half pound of USDA Choice Angus beef, served on a freshly baked roll. Add Monterey Jack cheese, mayonnaise or mustard, or all three for a sandwich you won't soon forget!


#2 Feijoada - Our own take on the Brazilian classic, Feijoada is a combination of pinto and black beans, sausage and bacon. Throw in plenty of onions and garlic and these simple ingredients don’t need much help from us to create a rich and savory treat.


#3 Spicy Slaw - To top it all off, we serve a brightly seasoned coleslaw made with just enough red pepper and vinegar zing! It’s the perfect complement to the earthy richness of the Carne Loca and Feijoada!

A BRIEF HISTORY...


The journey to perfecting my Carne Loca began many years ago at my parents home in Whittier.
Growing up in a Russian home, my mom and dad were both great cooks. Based on my mother’s recipe for what she called ‘chili meat,’ I began experimenting. Different cuts of meat, cook times, seasoning, you name it, I tried it. Then, in 2003, in my quest for the perfect recipe, and the prettiest girl I ever met, I found that missing piece. She was from Sao Paulo, and it was then that I learned of the Brazilian dish called Carne Loca.  I learned more about spices, prep and cooking techniques from my wife and my mother in law. Finally, I am a Mexican Food junkie! Growing up in Los Angeles, I’ve copped quite a bit of the East L.A. flavor! I like to think of my Carne Loca as the perfect blend of Russo-Brazilian-Mexican styles. Only in L.A., right?
You really gotta try this!  

PURSUIT OF PERFECTION

Like our menu, our approach to achieving perfection (or getting pretty dang close) is as simple as it is reliable - 

  1. - We only use USDA Choice Beef
  2. - We locally source our bread, which is baked fresh daily
  3. - We only use fresh, handpicked produce
  4. - Nothing is pre packaged, we do it all from scratch

Finally, and most importantly, we are motivated by our love for cooking. We love to see the smile on your face after that first taste. And, we love to hear, “WOW, that is the BOMB!” (That is a direct quote from a bunch of people who’ve tried Big J -n- Lil’ J’s Carne Loca.)
