On the search for the best burritos in Connecticut brings us to La Mexicana Grocery Store & Taqueria in Willimantic.
The burrito here has a great ratio of fillings.
Often in CT, burritos are just a little meat with an ungodly amount of rice (and maybe some beans).
Not here. The meat makes up a good part of the burrito.
The pastor overall, flavor-wise, was a little weak; it had a nice griddle flavor, but not much depth beyond that.
Meaning, it could have been any meat, the griddle flavor was dominant.
But that aside, it’s a good combination of flavors, good ingredients, good ratios.
Overall, a solid burrito.
But something is missing.
Maybe the meat just doesn’t have enough unique flavor to it.
The beans are relatively flavorless, as well.
I suspect tacos may be better here, but will have to find out.
And will happily do so.
