This burrito joint seems to have everything going for it—hip location, industrial-chic décor complete with exposed light bulbs and stark concrete walls, and of course everyone’s talking about Latin American food right now. And it’s a cool, if a little Subway-esque, dining concept.
You come in and order yourself a burrito ($12) or (in a rather tasteless jibe on the menu aimed at effeminate people) a slightly smaller burritino ($9). You pick one of five meats—most of them are soggy duds, so go straight for the juicy pork butt—and pile on rice, beans and your choice of three salsas. Cheese is an additional $1, guac another $2, but you can barely taste it really; try adding the flavorful roasted veggies ($1.50) instead. You end up with a bloated wrap that’s perfectly serviceable if you’re hungry, but off-puttingly soggy and oddly fibrous if you’re not.
You’ll definitely need to wash this down. The range of wines by the glass ($7.50) by Cali wine producer Barefoot—there’s seven grape varieties represented—are none-too-memorable, but great value and an unexpectedly nice touch to an otherwise underwhelming meal.
