Though the menu is extensive, stick with the massive, hand held-time-warp burritos at Pepe's. The chile relleno version spurts with melted cheese and grease; red-chili beef and green-chili pork possess the type of saltiness that can have the same effect as MSG has, a gentle buzz you can feel to your fingertips. Pepe's is also famous for its massive California burrito and breakfast burritos, and what better time to reacquaint yourself with machaca, that strange cut Mexican-American dives interpret as little more than shredded beef and bell pepper?
