Frida at the Americana

I find it hard to recommend a burrito that was listed as a special for $10 and has sour cream in it. But in the case of Frida, I can. The burrito was really good, not a taco truck style burrito, but really good for one you have to eat with a knife and fork in a mall in Glendale. The Americana is not exactly the Ferry building of Los Angeles. But stuffing a burrito with bits of rib eye steak is really great way to sell your $10 burrito. It helps that it was massive too. The service was a bit of a joke. I had to get up and get my own water. There were like 20 waiters floating around looking like some of the shoppers they are supposed to be serving. "Is this the same Frida as the one in Beverly Hills?" "Yes" says the disinterested hostess. Im not making plans to go back, but if Im at the Americana, I just may have to drop the $10 again and remember to bring a water bottle.
