Burritos like they have in San Diego

glutton | Jul 24, 2006 03:19 PM

My friend is from San Diego and he claims that burritos are a different breed down there. In San Diego, the standard burrito comes without rice and beans -- just meat, pico de gallo, and a few other ingredients. You can get rice and beans if you order them, but that is extra. It's a good burrito, no question. In LA, the normal burrito seems to have rice and beans. Perhaps this is a regional difference? Do you know places that make San Diego-style burritos? I know I could probably just order a burrito without rice and beans, but I suspect that they probably prepare the meat, etc. in a different way, too. My friend insists that San Diego-style burritos cannot be found in LA, but I struggle to believe that.
