I should’ve known better, but it really wasn’t up to me. Living in SoCal has probably spoiled me in terms of Mexican food, but I was in San Francisco with some people from Arizona, and I assumed they knew Mexican better than me. They suggested La Barca, so we went.
We had some margaritas and chips to start off the night, which were actually pretty good, but then I opened up the menu and was shocked to see the prices. $10.50 for a burrito? In San Francisco?! Whack!
In the end, however, I ended up choosing that burrito, for it seemed to be one of the most unvegan options. Of the meat choices, I picked Chili Colorado Beef, which sounded impressive, although it is apparently neither from Chile nor Colorado…
When it came, I was happy to see it joined by beans and rice, which made me feel a little better for the price, but someone had also thrown some sort of strange, Mexican salad on my plate, nearly spoiling the whole effect.
I tasted the burrito and it was really only halfway decent. Kind of disappointing for a meat called Chili Colorado Beef. It also wasn’t very big, being quite overshadowed by the other foods on my plate. The variety of food did fill me up, but it was only because of the rice and beans or else I would have left with a growling stomach.
