Lonchera Brother Express

Lonchera Brother Express is located on 82nd Ave in the Cartlandia food cart pod. If you're ever biking along the Springwater Corridor Trail and need some fuel, this is the place! The cart has Speedy Gonzalez on it and the sign says "Taco Truck Brother Express." My lovely boyfriend brought this burrito home for me after his jaunt to Home Depot to purchase a lawn mower because our grass (more like, weeds) was over a foot and half tall in places, but that's beside the point.

Carnitas Burrito

Yeah yeah, another carnitas...

Price: $5.00

Ingredients: Pork, beans, rice, cheese, onion, cilantro

Sides: 2 greens (they were out of red)

Size: Busty

The pork was supple, with that liiiiiiiiiiiiittle hint of crispiness along the seared edges- just so. A subtle salt and pepperiness carried that natural pork flavor from my palate right on up into the pleasure receptors of my brain. Who needs yoga and meditation (or medication)- really? All of the daily stresses from my extremely difficult life as a middle class white person just melted away. No amount of downward facing dogs could do that. Seriously. My Chakras were totally aligned (or whatever they do) after this burrito bombshell.

The Rating:

3.8 outta 5

Yuuuuuuummmm Yuuuuuuuummmm Yooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooommmmmm.


  1. Was there myself last night. Had four tacos, two carnitas and two carne asada. The carnitas was excellent. And the green salsa was really good, I just wish it was a tad more spicy. I'll have to try the carnitas burrito sometime.
    Don't forget to try the truck about a mile south on 82nd called La Catrina (next to McDonalds). I think their carnitas is just a little better (little saltier).
    Thanks for sharing your burrito explorations; I really enjoy hearing about them!

  2. Thanks Benjamin! I'll be sure to check that place out. Glad you like hearing about my adventures.

  3. Oh man, I would have given you my spare lawn mower if I had known you guys needed one!!!

    1. Too bad anonymous person! It's the thought that counts.
