Funny, I like Mission-style burritos.. guess I'm doing it wrong.

If I just wanted meat, I'd get tacos.

Tried the namesake "Nutri" burrito today. Not good. It was a grainy whole wheat tortilla with rice, beans, onions, bell peppers, a little bit of fake meat...? The veggies were fresh but the flavors weren't particularly Mexican and didn't go well with the tofu crema or the salsas they had. The onions were irregularly chopped and not browned enough; the bell peppers overpowered the rest of the ingredients. Nothing was seasoned enough to make up for the lack of cheese or sour cream or meat. I can happily eat a bowl of sprouts with olive oil for breakfast, but this felt like the lamest kind of health food. I hate getting burned for making a healthy choice or for choosing vegan/veggie at a place that supposedly does both.

I went to El Nutri yesterday with my ex-girlfriend*. We ordered liberally from the menu.

There's nothing new to report here. But the day was beautiful, we ate outside, I had my camera with me, and the food was delicious. How about some photos, then?

Let there be no question that the orange juice is fresh. I wanted it to be colder, but it was still good.

The "Gringos Taco." Flour tortilla with cheese, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and meat (carnitas, in this case).

Al pastor sope. The sopes are hand-made, while the tortillas are not. Incidentally, the sope recipe does include some wheat flour, if that's a concern to you.

Chorizo sope.

All of it was good to great. This has become one of my favorite carts. Of course, me being me, I want some more organ meats...but the chorizo is really damn good, too.
