Vegetarian Burrito: $5.25 or $6 Cuban Style after tax


All beans and rice are vegetarian


Hard to find owner operated oasis at the north end of the Santee shopping strip (Santee Alley). Nice blend of multi-cultural recipes from Mexico, Cuba, and the USA give La Torta Loca an original taste. Fresh ingredients, amazing habanero hot sauce and fresh mole (on Mondays), keep you coming back.  The speak easy of downtown lunch spots.  Not specifically a vegetarian place, but they do a great job of accommodating. Cuban style black beans without pork, rice without chicken stock and grilled tortillas. Three different red salsas: hot, medium and mild. The hot is killer hot (and one of the best out there), medium is a well balanced serrano pepper salsa, and the mild is made with arbol chiles. No salsa bar.  Not open after 5pm.
