Fixed that for you.

Out of curiosity, where did you get a burrito?

Where in LA are you going for burritos?

Most are terrible, but that's what the gringos expect to taste. But there are some gems out here.

What are you accustomed to? And where have you been to? No point recommending a place you've been to.

Poquito Mas is probably the best of the chain restaurants out here. People are all big on Chipotle, but sometimes their burritos are a bit...much...with the veg, beans, rice, and such.

Now, I've found a bbq restaurant in Van Nuys that does a great burrito, adding pieces of tri-tip steak instead of the typical overcooked beef. But I pretty much discovered that place by accident.

You really should just experiment at various taquerias until you find ones that you like.

Why don't you give Al & Bea's on 1st Street a shot and report back. I've been hearing for awhile now how good they are at burritos.
