BAORRITO on 3rd btwn 19th and 20th

League night eats! I was @ paddy's for some pool action, and it seems Baoguette was replaced by Baoritto. There doesn't seem to be much in that area (gramercy) past 7 pm if you just want something good for less than 10 bucks. Most of the time the crew gets a pizza delivered, subway, or a trip down to Paquito's.

The restaurant -

Nice set up, simple menu. I think the spot has much more space than Baoguette did.

I had a Chili Basil Baoritto - Ground beef with peppers, thai basil (aka cilantro?), lemon grass, and I think some mango salsa. Not too sure. It's like 1/3 beef, 1/3 veggies, 1/3 rice for about 7 bucks. Smaller than Chipotle, or the comparable burritos @ Taco King of Paquitos, but definitely really good on flavor. The hot sauce that accompanied it wasn't too hot.

I saw a bulgogi burrito, a kalbi/short rib burrito, pulled pork, and an indian style.
They had nachos, quesadillas, and get this "mole wings". I'll prolly try the nachos and wings next week.

Anyone else been?
