Chefs use hand-made tortillas to create chicken or pork tacos and sopes ($1.99 each), in addition to cheese quesadillas ($5.49) and burritos stuffed with carne asada, rice, and beans ($5.99). The menu also features six kinds of burgers, such as a double-bacon cheeseburger paired with fries ($6.99).
No matter how delicious the fillings, an otherwise promising taco can be easily ruined by a subpar tortilla—a complaint Gabriel of Xotl Burrito never faces. With a simple combination of corn masa and water, the Puebla, Mexico-area native hand-makes corn tortillas each and every day for his burritos, tacos, and sopes. And at Xotl, which means “fresh” in Aztec, tortillas aren’t the only house-made items. Gabriel follows his Mama Loreto’s recipes for seasoning and grilling succulent meats, such as carne asada and chicken, boosted by fixings from the fresh salsa bar. He spikes shaved ice, or raspados, with seasonal fruits, and even adds American food to the mix by creating burgers dressed with bacon, cheese, and a top hat.
Carne asada was very fresh tasting. The red salsa was spicy and flavorful.Andrew M., 8/30/12
