    I've been craving for a big and juicy authentic mexican burrito, anyone have any recommendations on mouth watering restos that serve killer burritos?

    only a few, good mexican places.......I like Cantina (fulfilling fillings) , Mexicali (not too salty, choice of toppings) and Taco Bell (fresh taste and good sauce).

    Cantina is adjacent to Starbucks Katipunan and is a favorite hangout of the smoke and drink Atenean crowd. Mexicali is in megamall and Promenade in Greenhills while Taco Bell is in the food court and ground level of Gateway mall. I make the rounds whenever I can because a good burrito is a meal by itself and it sure beats a burger/fries anytime of the day or night. There used to be a really good mexican place owned by a mexican lady in Greenbelt and Shangrila Mall. They serve excellent burritos and the hot sauce is made on the spot, but its defunct.

    I tried agave in Eastwood. Didn't like it at all.

    bon appetit

    The steak burrito at Mexicali is still my favorite among the local Mexican food restaurants. They also have a branch near the cinema at Trinoma.

    I recalled having excellent Mexican food (eons ago) at this place in San Antonio, Texas. It was at the La Margarita restaurant. They have good burritos at this place too, and is definitely a place to check out if you drop by the area.

    The Grilled stuffit steak burrito in Taco Bell is still the best for me. Cheese burrito in Mexicali's is second.

    I love Taco Bell's grilled stuft steak burrito. Mexicali's burritos, too.

    Mexicali and Cantina have the best burritos IMO. Also love Mexiacali's enchiladas and chimichangas. I have yet to enjoy a meal in Taco Bell. Have eaten there three times, always ordere different dishes, always been terribly disappointed. So I wasn't surprised when the branch fronting St. Luke's Medical Center closed down barely a year after it opened. Hardly anyone ate there at all.

    There's actually a small Mexicali near Polaris St. in Makati. If you're familiar with Handle Bar, it's on the street right before you reach that place.

    Now why did I read through this thread? I'm craving for Qdoba tuloy, ang layo pa naman (nasa states). Can't wait to try Cantina! This thread triggered my cravings for Mexican food! I'm raring to fly to Manila tuloy!

    I also like Mexicali. During lent they have this great tasting fish burrito. You can also choose to have whole wheat burrito.

    mexicali is still around and kickin'. The quality has remained constant over the years. I usually order the california sized roast pork burrito with chilis on the side and extra
    sour cream. One good thing about mexicali megammal is it is within a wifi zone for AA subscribers. Sjo the next time you see a fat guy eating a supersized burrito while typing a
    bunch on an MBA, that would be me!

    There's Mexicali too in RCBC Plaza in Makati… I just love the cheese quesadilla at Taco Bell for a quick and light snack. On Friday nights, it's usually Mexican if not Spanish buffet dinner at Palms Country Club.
