After some shenanigans involving a certain magical restaurant on Convoy street last night, I had to drive to PB today. I remembered one of my old coworkers raving about this place non-stop, I figured that I had to drop by and check it out.
Welcome to Taco Surf. What awaited me was the pinnacle of Southern Californian culinary culture, the perfect California Burrito. I’ll get to that in a minute.
The place is right by the beach in PB. And like most of the neighboring businesses in the area, the building is heavily steeped in surf culture. How heavily? Take a look.
The burrito? Oh yes. Let’s get back to that goodness. At Taco Surf, their california burritos are served with Hash Browns instead of French Fries. The standard fixin’s with their burritos are the following:
- Carne Asada
- Sour Cream
You are more than welcome to sub out any number of ingredients for something else. You can also sub out the meat for Adobata, Carnitas, or I think fish too. Why not. The price was reasonable too. The taste?? HEAVENLY. The Hash Browns give the burrito an added dimension of crunchiness lacking in previous burritos. Everything works out to a cavalcade of taste sensations, the waves of flavor taking you away to…a taco shop in PB. Full of surfboards.
Yes, the burrito did not disappoint. Every bite was magical. As I ate the burrito, I could hear the chorus of angels singing. Then I heard the Rolling Stones’ “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”. It was awesome. After we ate the burrito…I felt fine. No food coma. It felt rather refreshing. That’s the mark of a good burrito right there.
So would I go back to Taco Surf? You bet your ass I would.

Before I forget, lemme give a shoutout to my Ate Abby and Kuya Ian, out in the United Kingdom. Stay warm and safe, you guys.
