When I was in college in Philly, one of my favorite lunches was the plantain burrito from the Mexi-Cali lunch truck. Since I moved to NY, I've been unable to find one. I live in Park Slope but would be willing to make a trip for a good one. The restaurant Los Pollitos II in my neighborhood serves burritos and serves plantains, but when I asked the gentleman at the counter if he could make a plantain burrito, he curtly said "no."

Yeah, run of the mill flour tortilla burrito w/rice, beans, pico de gallo, but with plantain as the main filling instead of pork/chicken/beef. Never seen it anywhere else, but seems simple enough to get somewhere.
And yes, I have thought of just ordering a plain bean burrito with the plantains on the side and reconstructing in myself!
