Today was Rico's taco shop in Encinitas. As a California burrito connoisseur, I really look forward to my daily fix. The California burrito is, by its very essence, one of the greatest foods man has ever created. But if this journey has taught me anything, it's that even a simple delicacy like this can be fucked up.
Rico's shortcoming wasn't so much that they didn't use guac or pico; as I've found out sour cream is the most important of those three. It was that they went really skimpy on the sour. It has potential- good carne asada, good tortilla, great fries- but served as-is I'd say pass on this one.
