Dos Burritos, camote + milk

Low End Theory | Sep 10, 200404:52 PM

Dear Chowhounds,

Dos Burritos is a tiny shack on Hollywood (north side) just east of Vine, seating maybe 10 people. Mexican classics are tasty; pastor is not especially marinaded but grilled to a pleasingly crusty texture, machaca is a little too watery, killer rice and refried beans, above average encurtido esp. jalapenos, chile relleno (misspelled "reano" on menu to chagrin of counterman) is served with an amorphous mystery substance one later discovers is a fried hamburger bun. It's for the people and priced as such, a worthwhile stop in the neighbourhood and not to be confused with the two Los Burritos on Sunset or further west on Hollywood.

Perspex box of desserts was at fringes of my normal experience. Pressed milk/brown sugar things and coconut cakes in Mexican flag colours looked good but my friends and I opted for the chunks of geological camote/sweet potato/kumara, heavily sugared and coloured violent crimson. The dude suggested we take it with milk and picked out an extra good piece - it was treacly, starchy, and delicious.

Happy eating,

Low End Theory
