Ah, the breakfast burrito. Pannikin’s iteration isn’t the best or most authentic, but it was pretty damn good. I like mine with lots of hot sauce, too many double espressos, one halved, toasted pumpkin muffin (more like cake), and the latest issue of Wire (good Invisible Jukebox with William Bennett).
One of the best parts of coming home is eating proper Southern Californian-style Mexico food. We already gorged on the overwhelmingly large “Surf ‘n’ Turf” burrito from Lucha Libre (basically a California burrito — that’s tender carne asade and avocado with salty french fries nestled adjacent — but with sauteed shrimp thrown in the mix), and next on our list is the requisite trip to Marisco’s for their unbelievable $1 fish tacos (though it’s hard to not make a trip to the Normal Heights truck and not walk away having tried half the menu).
