I'm not even much of a burrito guy but recently set out to try all the breakfast burritos in Irvine I could. My quest may never end (as with the overall quest of this entire blog) but I'll update this entry every time I try a new contestant. And let me just say that I don't care where the breakfast burrito comes from. It doesn't have to come from a "Mexican" restaurant per se; it can come from any place that sells food and also happens to have breakfast burritos on the menu. So here's pictures (and possibly descriptions and comments) of the burritos I have come across so far.
Chipotle Breakfast Burrito
"Stuffed with scrambled eggs, shredded beef, green onions, cilantro and black beans. Topped with chipotle sauce and melted cheeses. Served with red skin potatoes."
Sausage Breakfast Burrito
Tacos & Co.
I can't remember what this breakfast burrito was called. Las Fajitas has three or four to choose from but they no longer have an official website because, as they told me, nobody ever looked at it.
La Sirena Grill
"Organic scrambled eggs, Niman Ranch sausage mixed with peppers, onions, garlic and choice of rice or pinto beans."
I already wrote about this burrito in an entry on the breakfast at the La Sirena Grill in Irvine. It can be read by clicking on the 'la sirena grill' label at the end of this entry.
My comments: More rustic than you would think coming from McDonald's.
Big Country Breakfast Burrito
My comments: nobody remembers that Taco Bell used to have a Country Breakfast Burrito with gravy in it. Now Taco Bell doesn't but Carl's does.
Machaca Burrito"4 eggs scrambled with shredded beef and pico de gallo stuffed in a handmade flour tortilla with jack/cheddar cheese and beans."
My comments: This burrito was huge.
My comments: This was an okay breakfast burrito. The interesting thing about it is that they serve it to you open-faced then you can roll it up yourself.
My comments: Similar to the machaca burrito but maybe a little better
Jerry's Wood-fired Dogs
Hot Link Breakfast Burrito
"Jalapeño hot link chopped with freshly scrambled eggs, grilled onions & peppers, with cheddar and pepper jack cheese. Served with a side of fresh salsa."
