Tarascos is the best example of a vegetarian burrito taqueria in the Silver Lake/ Echo Park area.  Nice outdoor seating, ample parking and complimentary chips and salsa make it a great place to hang out.  They have several types of veggie burritos, including a San Diego style California Burrito, so read the menu carefully before ordering.  Their salsa is exquisite, particularly their chile de arbol salsa (pictured below upper right orange/ red) .  The habanero is as hot as you’d expect from one of the spiciest peppers (pictured lower center).  Tomatillo is mild (pictured upper left green).  Their house salsa fresca tastes like they’ve been working on the recipe for decades (not pictured).  They have whole black beans or re-fried pinto beans.  Open until 3 AM on weekends.

Again, read the menu carefully, and order carefully

Value:  Good for the area

    The veggie nachos and veggie tacos are 100x better than the veggie burritto! Next time, try those- you won’t regret it.
