• another dose of pure luck

    May 4th, 2008quarrygirlLA restaurants, pure luck (closed)

    i can’t get enough pure luck. seriously. it’s by far my favorite restaurant. and so far, in my quest to try everything on the menu, i’ve never once been disappointed.

    burrito: a large flour tortilla stuffed with beans, rice, fresh avocado, tomatillo salsa and grilled tofu. comes with a side caesar salad. $9

    torta: grilled tofu, plus pinto beans, lettuce, tomato, onions, tomatillo salsa, sliced avocado and vegan mayo on a grilled rustic roll. (also with a side caesar salad.) $9

    first off, awesome burrito. it also comes with a jackfruit carnitas option, but i stuck with the more traditional tofu because i needed a protein fix. the sucker was absolutely massive, but that didn’t stop me from eating the whole thing.

    the tortilla was even grilled on the outside (which i love), and the spicy innards were full of flavor.

    next up, the torta! the amazing burrito pictured above made it really difficult to order something new on my next visit to pure luck. but for your sake, i did.

    the torta was pretty similar to the burrito, but the fact that it was on a rustic roll made it even better. it sounds kind of weird, but the vegan mayo perfectly complimented the beans, salsa and avocado. i really recommend this mexican-style sandwich to all you burrito lovers out there. you definitely won’t be sorry.

    maybe soon i will go back to ordering carnitas…but for now, it’s all about the tofu! YUM.

    looking forward to going back to pure luck as soon as i can, and reporting back to you with yet another menu item. i dare them to cook something that sucks—i don’t think it’s possible.
