This fast-casual eatery on St. Marks opened last May and specializes in a local Southern-California style burrito with a signature element: they’re stuffed with French fries (a San Diego specialty). Electric Burrito was born out of the pandemic when Alex Thaboua and Will Wyatt of nearby cocktail spot, Mister Paradise, originally started selling the items from their bar. With a limited number of counter stools, enjoy menu items like the California Burrito (fries, cheese, pico de gallo); Conga Burrito (beans, rice, crema) with carne asada, carnitas, or pollo asado as the base; breakfast burritos like Egg n’ Cheese, Veggie, or Chorizo; and specialty burritos like Shrimp, Portobello, or the Johnny Utah. Additional dishes include tacos, nachos, and carne asada fries.
From the team behind nearby cocktail bar Mister Paradise comes Electric Burrito, a fast-casual spot that opened this spring and is known for its signature french fry-stuffed Southern California-style burritos. Sporting a concise menu of specialty and breakfast burritos, tacos, and nachos, co-founders Will Wyatt and Alex Thaboua bring Thaboula’s San Diego roots to the neighborhood with standout options like egg n’ cheese, chorizo, and the Hot Rod with carne asada. Chase it down with a housemade Pico Pop soda, a must-try bottled drink made from pico de gallo tomato water and that tastes like liquid gold salsa.
