Loteria burrito and hypes

hb24west | Jun 12, 200809:18 PM

I've been meaning to try Loteria at Farmers market for years because of all the raving posts I read here years ago. Never got around to it until today. Ordered the shredded beef burrito.

Wow it was bad! One of the worst burritos I've ever had. Very salty and bland seasoned beef. Mushy white rice. Tiny traces of avocado, picante salsa mashed up and everything distributed unevenly. I don't think it was an off day. This is just crappy Mexican. There was no "Mexican aroma" in the food. Also very mediocre salsas. And like 9 bucks.

In the early 80s taco trucks started appearing in my neighborhood - 8th & Normandie. There was one truck using chopped cabbages as filler and they were surprisingly awesome and I fell in love(can I still find them anywhere?) Anyways I devoted part of my life looking for good tacos/burritos and today I failed.

Lives up to hype:
King taco
La Taquiza
El Taco Nazo
Grand Central Market
Chitchen Itza

Titos tacos
Carnitas michocan on broadway

geographic pattern possibly gives explanations
