The best burrito in Southern California!
Having lived in Southern California I have had my fair share of Mexican food, or "Taco Shop" food if you will. This includes, tacos, Carne Asada burritos, flying saucers, flautas, rolled tacos, Carne Asada fries (and chips!), etc. My new favorite taco shop item is known as the "2-in-1" burrito, let me tell you about it...
Ask anyone in Southern California and they`ll be able to list their favorite Mexican foods and where you can find them. For me it varies on what dish I want to eat. Until very recently I had never even heard of this particular dish, but once I did I was on a quest to find it. It was described to me as a "Taquito burrito" so I went along asking various different taco shops if they had it, but I just couldn`t find it. Until one day I described it to a friend- "It`s a carne asada burrito with a rolled taco inside" and he said "OOH! You mean the 2-in-1 at Lolita`s?". We continued to talk about it, until he convinced me it was indeed the Holy Grail I had been dreaming about. Soon after our conversation we made our way to Lolita`s and I anxiously awaited for my order number to be called- I couldn`t wait another minute.
When it finally came to me it looked like any other burrito.
A flour tortilla encased all the delicious food, tightly wrapped and waiting for me to dig in. So I did! I don`t know WHY I was surprised when I heard a loud CRUNCH. I knew there were rolled tacos inside, it was just unexpected for some reason. But don`t let that keep you from giving it a try, it is beyond amazing!
