Yuca's on Hillhurst has become one of our favorite afterwork treats. Yes, their cochinita pibil and asada tacos and burritos are great. But we have been hooked on Yuca's machaca burritos.
The Yuca's machaca burrito, an elegant burrito filled with seasoned braised beef, cooked until tender and perfectly folded in a soft velvety flour tortilla is so mouthwatering, so simply amazing. Most people will complain about the size of Yuca's burritos. I think they're perfect for me. It's all quality at Yuca's. Their James Beard Award truly says so.
A couple of weeks ago, Susan from Immeatchu told us that she loved Yuca's as well, especially their cheeseburgers. "There is just something crazy delicious about their super thin, crisped-around-the-edges beef patty, in a ubiquitous hamburger bun, with a sprinkling of just classic condiments. So frickin good."
Yes, Susan, they are so frickin good. There's something so amazing about burgers from a Mexican joint. The carne asada by-product left on the grill does wonders to a simple meat patty.
