Burrito King breakfast, LA

Here is a pic of my breakfast from Burrito King in Los Angeles. Let me preface this post by saying that Burrito King is NOT my favorite taco stand in LA, but it is my wife’s favorite. They have several branches, but this shot is from their Hyperion location. We often hit the Echo Park location at Sunset and Alvarado late at night, and it’s usually pretty crowded, and fairly safe. They seem to have a more extensive menu at the Sunset location, but the Hyperion location has a serve-yourself salsa/condiment bar which has chopped onions, lime, cilantro and encurtido in addition to several salsas.

This plate pretty much sums up what Burrito King is all about: cheap, plentiful portions of decent-but-not-great Mexican-American food. This photo is of the “Mexican Breakfast #2” or Machaca con Huevos. They describe this as “shredded beef prepared with mild Mexican spices and scrambled with two eggs and served with rice and refried beans”. I topped mine with onions, cilantro, salsa and encurtido (pickled carrots, onions and peppers), and ended up with a serious plate of breakfast for only $4.65!
