Review: MariCruz_mission burrito
Mission: Accomplished! Born in San Francisco half-a-century back, the “Mission burrito” has touched down in Warsaw… Where Am I? You’ll find more elbow room on a submarine, but the tight dimensions of MariCruz simply add to the atmosphere. Exuding the rackety, rickety feeling of a food shack, it’s an... Read more
Mari Cruz Mission Burrito
You’ll find more elbow room on a submarine, but the tight dimensions of MariCruz simply add to the atmosphere.
