LA Baguette’s Burrito is Basically Street Meat in a Tortilla
Last week, Lunch’er “uncledunkle” took to the ML forums to ask if anyone had ever tried the burrito from the La Baguette truck (SE Corner of B’way & 40th Street). I’d been wanting to try La Baguette myself and this seemed like a perfect opportunity to take a bullet for a good cause (too bad they answered their own question before I got a chance. Oh well, I’m one day late!) Anyway, I too got the chicken burrito ($5) and was kind of happy to discover that it’s basically just another way to enjoy some delicious street meat.
You get a wheat tortilla stuffed with chicken, rice, beans and cheese, plus a generous serving of their salad. The whole thing then gets slathered with white sauce and hot sauce. I know Zach will turn his nose up because you can’t eat it with your hands (the construction would actually allow you to, you’d just end up with sauce all over your hands, face, shirt and pants) but I wasn’t really expecting a proper burrito from a street meat specialist anyway. I have a suspicion the sauces are the main thing keeping this from being a pretty mundane affair. I’m not sure what it would be like without them, and I don’t think I’d want to find out. I think next time I’ll ask them to throw some of their pickles in there.
