South Bay Burritos

Humbucker | Aug 23, 201312:08 AM

I'm back in the bay area after moving away a few years ago and was wondering if anyone could make a recommendation for a good carnitas burrito between Palo Alto and San Jose that includes one particular element.

I used to frequent Taqueria La Bamba and really liked their carnitas super burritos, but maybe 5 years back I noticed they changed their tortillas. The old style of tortillas they had were somewhat thick, golden and rich tasting: almost like a softer roti bread. At some point they seemed to have switched to a mass-produced product closer to the gummy flavorless wraps used by Chipotle (although I've been away, so who knows, maybe they switched back).

Are they any taquerias out there that you know use that more rustic style of tortilla and have great carnitas?
