Macho Plate: "Not For A Woman"
This being my first time back in a while, the menu had changed: Macho Plate. "What's that?" I asked the man behind the counter.
The response revealed his machismo:
It's big. Three meats, chicken, carnitas, steak. Sour cream, guacamole. Not for a woman.
Sized and priced as a dinner, the Macho Plate will put hair on your chest.
Burritos On Fire, No Plantains
It is unclear if the name has changed; the old tarp remains.
Also, the delicious plantains they once offered have been removed from the menu. Boo.
Insurance Money Well Spent
Many thanks to Nikhiel for the pictures of the new interior.
Grand Re-Opening At El Burrito
A few months after "The Great El Burito Fire" the doors are open again.
While they are offering only limited menu items at this time, we hope the full menu (especially the plantains) will return soon.
Thanks to Nikhiel for the news tip.
Not Hot, On Fire
Allegedly, NSTAR or the landlord are to blame.
They should be back in business relatively soon.
You Talk, We Listen
Go to EL BURRITO in brighton. It's on brighton ave just past harvard st. Try the CHICHARRONES. QUE BUEN SABOR, CACHUNDO.
And so we did. Greg got it, and he said it was good. Chicharon is pork cracklings. They're a little fatty and a little crunchy. You can see a bit in the top left of the picture.
Patrick Bateman, your wish is my command.
No Words To Describe
This is a super chicken from El Burrito. What can I say other than it was good? Um, it was big...
Writer's block. I'll be back on the saddle tomorrow.
Not Poops, Plantains!
The fried plantains from El Pelon look much more appealing 'cause they're sliced, but I'm going to have to give the flavor nod to El Burrito.
Welcome To El Burrito TaqueriaHave you been to Allston Rock City? The place is dirty. El Burrito Taqueria is in Allston, and it's dirty, too. The guy who makes your burrito is usually the same guy who's making your change, but I try to look past such details.
Fortunately, they serve burritos, not dirt, and the burritos are damn good.
Despite its convenient location on Brighton Ave (Map), they deliver (nights and weekends only) with a minimum of only $10.
