The Original California Burrito Company
Burrito place arrives in Surry Hills
Sometime during the “Dude Food” Revolution, burritos became the hip kid approved fast food meal. This meant a number of Mad Mex’s popping up around the place, as well as Beach Burrito opening in Newtown. But Surry Hills was largely left off the map. Where previously you’d have to make the trek to Oxford to satisfy your mexi-cravings, you can now sate your needs at The Original California Burrito Company on the Cleveland Street end of Crown Street.
The OCB boasts all the pleasures of any burrito joint and thensome, choose your filling of beef, chicken, shrimp, beans or mixed vegetables, all available on your choice of burrito, quesadilla or chimichunga with all the trimmings (sour cream, pico de gallo, beans, rice, etc). Also available are vegie, beef or chicken tacos, as well as a range of salads and smaller size nibles (corn chips with salsa and guac or a bowl of Anaheim chilli).
Something that makes The OCB stand out from it’s peers is the option of soy cheese and dairy free sour cream, meaning even vegans and lactose intolerant can partake in the merriment. Also on offer are a range of Meixcan drinks, but these are not for the faint of heart, being tooth achingly sweet.
The Original California Burrito Company has only a small dining room and lacks the frozen margheritas of some burrito joints (this may very well be a good thing), but the service is friendly and the food is tasty. This burrito joint is a long awaited addition to the Surry Hills scene, and it is more than welcome. What’s more, word is a delivery service is in the works. Get excited people.
