Any mexican food like Nico's Taco shops in San Diego?
I'm looking for any place in the LA area that has bean and cheese burritos with great refried beans and flour tortillas that are not wet, and carnitas burritos with pork that's crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Any suggestions? I have tried Lucky Boy, Puebla Taco, King Taco, La Estrella, Green St, Dona Rosa, Burrito Express, Cactus, Benitos, Burrito King, Tacos Mexico, My Taco, Tere's, the place at the Farmer's Market, Rosarito's, and Yucca's. I didn't think it would be this hard to replace Nico's!
As someone who grew up in SD, I know how you feel and for me, it's the carne asada burritos that I miss.
So far, there's only one taco shop (recommened on this board) I've been to in LA that makes a carne asada burrito fairly close to the SD style.
It's on Westwood in West LA and it's called Eduardo's Border Grill; I get the "classic" burrito minus the queso.
Haven't tried their carnitas (and I don't like bean and cheese burritos), but since you're open to trying places, it's worth a shot.
