East LA’s La Azteca Tortilleria makes some of the best flour tortillas in the city. They’re soft and light but still firm, and whatever they’re wrapped around is bound to be the best burrito you’ll ever eat. Their carne asada, potato, and fried egg option is a work of art, but if you want to take it to the next level, ask them to add chile relleno. Adding these fried chiles stuffed with cheese into a breakfast burrito is an absolute revelation. Expect a line if you’re there on a weekend, so go grab a coffee and a pastry from El Gallo Bakery next door while you wait.
