Any So Cal style burritos in NYC?

Andy | Sep 15, 2001 12:02 AM

I'm looking for the perfect burrito, which exists in abundance in San Diego, but not here.

The perfect burrito (for me) is smaller than the "San Francisco" style, can be eaten with just the hands (it won't fall apart if you pick it up), and NEVER has rice in it. Typical fillings are machaca or carne asada or shredded chicken.

The only burritos I've found on the east coast are very similar to the Northern California variety, and are big, full of rice and beans and typically have ground beef or chopped chicken fillings.

Anyone else know the burrito that I know, and where to find them?
