La Chabelita - Carnitas Burrito

martyR | Dec 15, 2004 03:24 PM

I've been meaning to try this place for a long time. La Chabelita is on the corner of Western and 20th, just north of the 10 freeway. They have a few tables to sit at outside, but no inside dining that I could see. From the murals on the wall, you would think they specialize in seafood, but meat seems to be the king here.
Most people were ordering the carne asada tacos and burritos, but I wanted carnitas. I'm not particularly fond of rice and beans in my burros so I got the all-meat carnitas version.
It was a huge amount of pork in a flour tortilla with some onions and green salsa inside and some sprinkled cheese and red salsa on top. Really nice flavor to the carnitas and the salsas went well with it too. Its really a meal by itself for about $7. I highly recommend. I need to come back and try the asada.
Its right next to a fire station so be ready for a deafening siren if a call goes out.
