Why didn't this otherwise respectable burrito clear our critical eight-mustache hurdle? Look no further than its drab intangible charm, as there were plenty of other strongly performing elements here to warrant recommendability. Like what? Like the smartly grilled tortilla, mostly feverish spiciness, and all-melted cheese, as well as the twin foundations of hot bites and solid construction. The stewed pork, meanwhile, was the most flavorful item on hand, with a charmingly shred-friendly texture to it. But there were plenty of shrugs to go around as well, from the ordinary refried beans and sub-ordinary rice to the neither-here-nor-there ingredient mix and occasional sauce-drips down the side of the tortilla (boo); indeed, some slurping was required. And as much as we enjoyed the aforementioned pork, there really should have been more of it. This sizable but soft dunch didn't quite put it all together.
