Taco Miendo: you probably haven’t heard the name before? But remember it.  The name combines the overlapping words taco and comiendo (meaning “eating” in Spanish).  One of the best values in town (will make my top 10 list), but with two inconspicuous locations they are easy to overlook.  Opened in 2000, Culver City, was their first spot.  Simple strait forward burrito: black or pinto beans, rice, pico de gallo and jack cheese.  They make their own fresh tortillas and have a nice salsa bar.  None of the salsas are much hotter than a medium, but all are rich with flavor in their own right. I can’t quite figure out how to describe the yellow chunky salsa (between the green and red in the photo).  I asked someone who worked there “what”s it called”, they didn’t know; so it will remain a mystery.  Taco Miendo is not convenient for me, but I have unfinished business there, and like General MacArthur said to the Philippines “I shall return”.
