1. Burritos in the morning, burritos in the evening, burritos at dinnertime
Take La Tapatia, for instance. Or Pica’s. Or Taqueria Vallarta, Huapangos, El Farolito, La Taqueria, Al & Bea’s, Taco Surf, Picante Martin’s, La Vic, Papalote, or Taqueria insert-any-Spanish-word-here. None of your top 5 favorite burrito places is even on this list, is it?
That’s because California has that many and they’re all an understood amount of moment-transcending deliciousness. They can be found on trucks, in holes-in-the-wall, or as part of a 5-star dining experience, but their origins have nothing to do with the quality of their cheesy, beefy goodness. There’s a breakfast burrito for when you’ve been up all night, a chile relleno burrito for when life is just too dull, and even tofu burritos for the true Californian at heart, whenever or wherever the craving hits.
