Best Burrito: El Arepazo Latin Grill

From the March 28, 2013 edition

This teeny, lunch-only Downtown gem might specialize in Colombian and Venezuelan preparations, but voters noted El Arepazo knows its way around a burrito too.

What helps separate its versions from the rest of the giant tortilla-rolling pack — aside from the fact they’re served with fries — are a wide range of cuts-above fillings that include tilapia filets, an all-veggie option and several zesty, long-stewed meat treatments.

Also in its recipe for success: a widely beloved, mayo-based cilantro hot sauce (that stuff would be good on sawdust) plus a colorful Pearl Alley setting.
