If you’re looking for a heavy, grease-laden burrito, head elsewhere. This is the grown-up version of every other grittier burrito joint in the Lower Height neighborhood. And The Little Chihuahua is just as authentic. They use locally sourced products and sustainable methods to create a fantastic, totally original menu. Their fried plantain burrito is a revelation—the perfect mix of sweet plantains and savory guac and sour cream—it's truly one-of-a-kind. And that whole notion in regards to feeling guilty ordering a burrito at an authentic mexican joint; that doesn't apply here because all of them are amazing. If a salmon quesadilla sounds good, order the Dandy Chihuahua off the secret menu. Take either route and you’ll surely need something to wash it down. Their fresh horchata will more than serve the purpose. If there’s any room left for dessert, try a root beer float with tequila ice cream.
Since you’re just east of San Francisco’s beloved Haight-Ashbury, it’s worth the short walk to continue west down Haight Street where you’ll find loads of vintage boutiques, tattoo parlors, taxidermy shops and record stores, each adding to the Haight’s unique subculture. It’s one of the city’s best spots for wandering around and enjoying every find.
