potato burrito?

i'm looking for a place that makes potato burritos - fried sliced potatoes preferably with cheese, sour cream, and some kind of thin, hot salsa. this place i used to go to in san diego made these and with a large horchata - real horchata not the nasty kind that comes from a machine - this would be my perfect hangover meal. is there any such thing up here?

  1. Sounds like you might be looking for the famed "spuderito": . (Excellent video here: http://myculinaryadventures.blogspot.... ).

    1. It's not the style you describe but, you can get a change-your-life, or at least a change-your-hangover, potato burrito at Loteria Grill in the Farmers Market on 3rd and Fairfax. Thier potatoes are mashed with roasted poblanos and they are truly spectacular. And yes they have real Horchata.

        1. In Atwater Village, on Glendale Blvd, just north of the Hyperion Bridge, just south of Canele' and the slimey Bikrum Yoga place, there is a place that I think is called "Cactus" they have tons of burritos and everything has the potato option....they have a ton of burritos that are "potato and......" choose whaterver you want to put in 'em and they have some mighty good salsa.
          There are two chairs outside and sometimes a table...most people just eat standingup outside or they walk down the street and eat at the tables outside of the Atwater Grille.

            I think you mean Tacos Villa Corona and yes they have a potato option with about everything. I highly recommend their potato, egg, spinach and cheese burrito. They do not serve horchata though.

              yep, tacos villa corona. and i second everything you said -- the spinach and papas burrito is delicious! and the family that runs the place are really friendly, too.

                LaLa Eat, you're right...the reason I thought it was named cactus is because there is a cactus on the card...hmm, I happen to be a very visual girl.
                I loved the chorizo, in my potato, egg, and cheese, burrito...I would have wanted a bit more spice but the slasa was pretty good.
                The tortillias are some yummy.
