Old Fashioned Mexican Vegetarian Street Burrito $6.59 after tax

Seemingly the rebirth of the lost MacArthur Park Luna del Sol, with a little more smiling.  It appears their burritos have grown out of wraps.  Un-chopped red cabbage, and whole stalks of cilantro, both create a chewing challenge for your jowl.  A little prep chopping could go a long way towards burrito improvement.  Salsa: comes with a red semi-catsupy tomato sauce; you can ask for their “Mexican” salsa, green lightly spiced, probably more appropriate as salad dressing.  Healthy, earth conscious, 90’s coffee shop vibe.  If you’re stuck on Temple Ave at breakfast or lunchtime, you will be thankful for the existence of Tribal Café.

Value: Fair

 

WIZARD’S SCORE: 6.75
