There is nothing factory-like about Burrito Factory, and it offers much more than just burritos. A small stacked shop amongst Pali Naka's clutch of little delivery-driven eateries, it serves entrées, tagines, pastas and salads, in addition to 10 vegetarian and nonvegetarian burritos.
We started with the tuna-egg burrito and grilled veggie burrito. Were they the best burritos we have ever had? Perhaps not. Were they among the best we have had in the city? Yes. They were fresh, loaded, flavourful and tasted of the things that they should, for the most part. The textural fixings were nearly spot on — fat brown rice, lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, a creamy chipotle sauce, a spot of salsa and a swathe of cheese. Only the black beans in ours were half-cooked, but that's easily fixed.
We tried the olive-studded chicken tagine, which was pleasant enough after a squirt of lime. But at the Burrito Factory our priority is the burritos; such few places in the city get them right.
