Live Action Quick Tips
Did you know….
The precise origin of the modern burrito is not known. It may have originated with vaqueros in northern Mexico in the nineteenth century;farmworkers in the fields of California’s Central Valley, in Fresno and Stockton; or with northern Sonoran miners of the 19th century.In the 1895 Diccionario de Mexicanismos, the burrito was identified as a regional item from Guanajuato and defined as “Tortilla arrollada, con carne u otra cosa dentro, que en Yucatán llaman coçito, y en Cuernavaca y en Mexico, taco” (A rolled tortilla with meat or other ingredients inside, called ‘coçito’ in Yucatán and ‘taco’ in the city of Cuernavaca and in Mexico City).
An often-repeated folk history is that of a man named Juan Méndez who sold tacos in a street stand in the Bella Vista neighborhood of Ciudad Juárez, using a donkey as a transport for himself and the food, during the Mexican Revolution period (1910–1921).To keep the food warm, Méndez wrapped it in large homemade flour tortillas underneath a small tablecloth. As the “food of the burrito” (i.e., “food of the little donkey”) grew in popularity, “burrito” was eventually adopted as the name for these large tacos.(en.wikipedia.org)

Burrito De Pollo, As long as it is with their shredded chicken it will be good
Every time I go to a Mexican restaurant and I order a wet burrito there is usually some kind of red chili/enchilada sauce that is used.
El Caminito is the only place I know if where the wet burrito has a light brown sauce over it that is so divinely created and tasty you think it was created in the heavens.
They have a shredded chicken so tender that it almost tastes like there is butter mixed in with it. Anywhere else the chicken would have been fat chunks of sliced chicken.
They also add perfectly cooked refried beans and cheese to the burrito with cheese blended in with the sauce on top of the burrito as well.
Each bite consists of this delicate shredded chicken and this sauce that just sparkles in your mouth as a delicious treat to your palate. It is a good size portion and will leave you in a comatose so be ready to take a nap after. 🙂
If you are in the Sunnyvale, Ca area and are looking for a great place for Mexican food then this is where to be. Good job El Caminito! True live action eating!
