Most of the Mission's veggie burritos fail because they make a direct substitution of tofu for meat. Tofu will never be meat, no matter how long you simmer it in ranchera sauce. Papalote and El Balazo's grilled vegetable burritos approach satisfying, but the Little Chihuahua's plantain and black bean burrito beats them all because it starts from a different point altogether. The burrito brings together slices of creamy, sweet fried plantain with roasted red peppers, enough cheese to contain the sugars in the fruit, and black beans, which don't need a hunk of smoked pork to taste meaty. Drizzle the orange-habanero or tomatillo salsa from the salsa bar overtop for a fruity kick. Is it "authentic"? Is a vegetarian burrito authentically anything? Just don't call it a wrap.

This burrito is ridiculous. If you don't try it, you've lost out on yet another cheap food wonder.
