best burrito i ever had - in santa barbara of all places

mr mouther | Jan 27, 2009 02:21 PM

coming back home to LA from SF, we got lost in SB and i saw a burrito place with walk up window and wanted one.
turned out to be this place:
called Romanti-Ezer apparently. (is that correct or name of old place that was there?)

Thing is - I want to recreate what i ate and i need a local to help me, cuz the one i ordered was written on a markerboard and it's not listed on the menu from that website above.

The thing that really made this thing amazing was plantains inside the burrito. And beans wonderfully cooked. But the sweetness of the plantains finally made sense, and bounced off the pico de gallo and hot sauce tartness. (plantains for me are always a kind of 'whatever' on the side of a dish - but without them this burrito would have just been so-so.)

Can someone please tell me what else they put in the 'special' burritos? - I dont get up there that often.
