On the front door of Muchacho is a sign that reads “deluxe vibes.” That ethos — fun without sacrificing quality — is embodied by the restaurant’s surfer burrito.
Thanks to its impeccable construction, this dish manages to be both huge and easy to eat. Served already sliced in half, its well-balanced and flavorful fillings somehow manage to stay inside the tortilla.
The burrito’s layers of California-themed flavors are stratified clearly, starting with tender, juicy carne asada. Savory and satisfying, the meat’s juices mingle wonderfully with the other components, especially the thin-cut french fries. Pico de gallo and sour cream add cool, zingy tartness, while the cheese cements everything together with an added bit of richness.
The end result is a burrito that perfectly matches Muchacho’s vibe: deluxe, and yet effortless.
