Washington, D.C. is one of the most transient cities in the world, literally torn down and re-built every 4 to 8 years.  Cataloging restaurants can be like following stock quotes on the ticker while the market is open.  But, Super Tacos & Bakery (formerly Pepito’s II) seems to have staying power.  Considered to be the best “contemporary” burrito in D.C. by just about anyone who’s been to Super Tacos, I am not disappointed.  The veggie burrito is filled with sautéed vegetables (which usually doesn’t work, but does here).  Sauces: a pureed mild salsa; a warm cheese sauce.  Hot Sauces: spicy red & green (over salted).  Decent pico de gallo w/ jalapenos.  Feels more Central American than Mexican.
