portland burrito junkieThis food cart is in a thrift store parking lot at SE Division and 33rd ave. I don't know much about it, other than that I was starving and driving by, when it caught my attention. It's a fun cart to look at- bright orange, with a hand painted menu that takes a while to decipher. There are regular and super size burritos, and you can make them "supreme" if you choose.

This behemoth is the longest I've ever had. I've had girthier, but they don't come lengthier than this. I can't imagine what a super size version must look like, or what kind of human could possibly fit the entirety of one into their body. Sometimes the largest ones can be deceiving, as size does not always equal excellence. Was this just another enormous burrito bamboozlement, or did it work its wonders in more ways than one?

I savored the bites of delicate flaky tilapia, slathered in rich oozy sour cream, with ripe chunks of avocado interspersed. The warm creamy beans, crisp lettuce, melty cheese, and fresh cilantro mingled about merrily in my mouth. The evocative red sauce stirred distant memories around in my mind. At times, this burrito suffered from fish sparsity and onion overabundance. Though I enjoyed the act of consuming this glutinous beast, the flavors weren't particularly distinctive. However, it was engaging enough to keep me chomping away until the very last bite. The burrito filled my stomach and stretched all the way up into my brain. Food coma bliss ensued, with a nice meditative nap.

The Rating:

3.5 outta 5 stars

Will I go there again?  Yes, would like to try other options.

  1. The chili relleno burrito is pretty darned good when they have it. They are closed now and are moving down the street to Division and 42nd, I think. You will need to check them out. I look forward to reading your review.
