Has anyone EVER succussfuly found a single SoCal Style Burrito here?

I know its been discussed in depth, but Ive searched the city over, and then over and am not satisfied. (if you care) I researched it and found out about places that grill their tortillas in the mission, and tried them and liked them...but

At all those places the torillas were criticaly different. The ones in SD all seem to be more yellow, perhaps thicker, and less floury--almost as if lard was in the batter. The chicken is always mixed white and dark meat,and stewed in an orangeish liquid. With a glop of garlicky guacamole, the log is perfect--missing both beans and rice. The whole thing is also more narrow than the northern counterparts.

People have recomended cancun, and el taquria, and asking to hold the beans and rice...but i swear it is still different.

Is there a SINGLE burritoe place up here, like EVERY Burrito PLACE is down south.
