My boyfriend went to Guanaco's with a friend of his a few weeks ago and he's been talking about it ever since then. He said I had to try their Pastelitos. So last weekend we went to Guanaco's so I could try these things out. Guanaco's is a little restaurant in the University District. The staff at Guanaco's is very friendly. When we were there you could see two of the cooks in the kitchen chopping up all the fresh vegetables.
We ordered a plate of Pastelitos Guanacos and a Chicken Burritos Guanacos. Pastelitos are corn flour pockets filled with beef, onions and carrots. They are then flash fried and served with curtido. My boyfriend was right. The Pastelitos were very good! They were perfectly crispy. The beef, onions and carrots tasted as if they were seasoned. The burrito was very good also. It pretty much looks just like a Taco Del Mar burrito, but it definitely tastes much better. All of the ingredients taste so fresh. It was like having an authentic, homemade burrito. Guanaco's won't hurt your wallet either. They are very reasonably priced.
