Burritos La Palma

Food trends that sweep through LA tend to eventually reemerge in burrito form. Whether it’s the sushirrito, Indian curry burrito, or plant-based burrito, our love for this rolled up staple is unshakable. That’s why no birria guide would be complete without mentioning the birria burrito at Burritos La Palma in Boyle Heights. Made with handmade Zacatecas-style flour tortillas, these tightly wrapped burritos are small pockets made with perfectly chewy tortillas that hold nothing except tender beef birria dripping in smokey consommé. That’s right, there’s no guac, cheese, or lettuce to be found in these burritos, and that’s 100% OK. The birria is flavorful enough to stand on its own and pairs well with the buttery tortilla. Keep in mind that these burritos are small, so don’t expect the forearm-sized monsters you might be used to seeing elsewhere. Instead, order as many as you want, which is usually one to two more than I probably should have.
