Dos Toros Taqueira, Welcoming FANTASTIC California-like Burritos!

Helllllooooooo California Burrito! Dos Toros Taquiera has one of the best burritos I've had in a very long time. This place will certainly give Calexico (one of my favorites in the city) and Chipotle a run for their money. It was started by two brothers, Leo and Oliver Kremer, who came to New York from San Francisco and discovered the city lacked some of their favorite Mexican food... so, wha-la, Dos Toros came to be!

Dos Toro's menu is simple: burritos, tacos, quesadilla, and plato (burrito sans tortilla) served with your choice of filling: carnitas (pork), carne asada (steak), pollo asado (grilled chicken) and basic rice and beans. The cool thing about the tacos is you can either have the shell "hard" or "soft" (get your mind out of the gutter! ha ha). Prices are in-line w/ Chipotle around the corner and Calexico food cart in Soho -- with a protein filling, burritos are $7.35, tacos are $3.67, quesadillas are $5.97, platos are $7.35 and less w/o meat.

Everything on the menu looked great, but I decided to start out with the Carnitas burrito. it was delicious. The pork was succulent and mouth watering. The beans and rice were plentiful and the pico de gallo was perfect - not tangy, not too hot, juuuuust right. :D The burrito is quite big (um, that's what she said) ... so you won't leave this place feeling hungry afterwards. I sadly did not add the guacamole (poor decision), but I would suggest adding it as my friends said it was very fresh and tasty!

Even though I was more than happy with my burrito, I certainly had food envy as I saw my friends with their meat filled to the top tacos and strangers with their cheese-oozing quesadillas. Needless to say, you can't go wrong with anything you order and I will certainly be back to taste the other items! And, seeing how long the lines are at this place, I'm not alone in my thoughts. However, its worth the wait.

Happy eating!
