We used to live in Venice around the corner from Fiesta Brava on Rose. A very decent local Mexican restaurant. One of the things they would make for us was a fantastic chicken and veggie burrito. It was not on the menu, all it had in it was chicken, broccoli, zucchini, some onions, in either their red or green sauce.
We now live in Mar Vista and though we could drive over to Fiesta Brava for the burrito I would love to find someplace that would make a comparable one.
I have spoken with:
Paco's, Lares, Gilberts and a few others and they all have no idea what I am talking about and they say they have NO, none, zero vegetables other than onions and peppers.
Even at Fista Brava we had to remind them of what we had ordered in the past, but each time it was an excellent, non carbo loaded burrito.
Any thoughts on othe places I should try to convince that they can indeed do it in my new area. I will definitely try Gallego's.
