MexiCali Burrito Co

Eyes And Taste Buds Disagree

The MexiCali burrito at MexiCali Burrito Co. at $6.25 comes with 1 filling, 2 toppings, rice, and beans. This allows for what may be my most frequent burrito ordering configuration: meat, beans, rice, salsa, and guacamole. That means no sour cream, no cheese. Lactard style.

Eyes: This wasn't the best looking burrito. Poor ingredient distribution shows the rice on the right, meat and beans on the left, and the guacamole folded in the lower part of the photo with tortilla on both sides. And a lack of structural integrity.

Taste Buds: I really liked it. I ordered their chile colorado, which is spicy pork in guajillo chili sauce. I devoured this thing.

I'll have to return for a second opinion to settle the eye / taste bud dispute.

Welcome To MexiCali Burrito Co.

Depending on how nerdy a person you ask, MexiCali Burrito Co. is near the Cambridge intersection of:

  • Main Street and Portland Street
  • Technology Square and Galileo Galilei Way
Seriously (Map).

With hours of 11am to 8pm, open weekdays only, MexiCali Burrito Co. caters to the office workers in Kendall Square.

They opened in the spring of 2008. The menu consists mostly of burritos and tacos, but also has some plates and offers whole wheat tortillas.

With burrito names like Watsonville and East LA, I knew something was strangely familiar. MexiCali Burrito Co. is the step brother of Baja Betty's in Brookline Village.

You can find their menu on the official site here.
