What’s It Taste Like?

The Breakfast Burrito starts with a warm flour tortilla, filled with scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes, black beans, queso fresco and chorizo sausage, along with pico de gallo and a green tomatillo salsa. Though my husband disagrees, I think all the ingredients blend together will into a tasty, flavor-packed, mobile breakfast.

People who love spicy food probably won’t find it so, but to me the chorizo sausage and tomatillo salsa have a bit of a kick to them. It doesn’t really hit you at first, but by the time you get to the bottom of the burrito you’ll be feeling it.

A fresh fruit cup is served with the burrito and has blueberries, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, and pineapple.

Is It Easy To Eat?

The Breakfast Burrito comes in a healthy size and can be a mouthful. Grab some napkins because it can get messy.

At first, the Breakfast Burrito is very easy to walk around with and eat single-handed. It comes wrapped in wax paper for easy handling.

However, this burrito is pretty juicy. The wax paper helps keep the fluids in for a while, but eventually it will start to leak. Also, about halfway down the paper sticks to the tortilla, leaving you with messy, shredded paper, like with the Harbour Galley Barbecue Chicken and Slaw Baked Potato.

Be careful when removing the wax paper from the burrito, or you’ll dump all the ingredients into your lap. I decided to let them fall on the plate and eat the rest with a knife and fork.

If you are lucky enough to keep yours intact, it will still probably need two hands to keep the burrito together.

The way that this burrito is wrapped leaves a thick bundle when you get to the bottom as you can see in the image below. My husband doesn’t like this but I do for two different reasons. One, it helps to keep the stuffing and juices in the burrito and off of my lap. Two, it helps to tame the heat that has built up on my tongue from the chili spices.

Mom-in-Chief Jamie’s Opinion

The Breakfast Burrito is one of my favorite breakfast dishes in the park. I love the way it tastes and how easy it can be to eat. The ingredients are healthy too and I feel good feeding this to my kid.

The burrito is bland enough and filling enough to feed to a child. In fact, half the time my son Jack won’t eat anything but scrambled eggs, so it’s easy enough to feed him little bits or put them on a plate. If your kid can eat and walk at the same time, you can carefully move towards the next ride while eating.

Kids will probably like the tortilla itself as well, so make good use of the excess at the bottom of the burrito and part it out to your kids.

I’ll be real honest- the Breakfast Burrito doesn’t really thrill me. The portion is great but to me it’s bland. I think it needs some Tapatio.

And it just so happens that the Tomorrowland Terrace has partially prepared for people like me, stocking La Victoria hot sauce packets in the condiment stand. The sauce isn’t hot, but at least it adds some flavor to the burrito.

However, the burrito does pretty well on price, coming in a dollar cheaper than the Breakfast Platter with probably the same portion size. It’s way more of a deal than the ‘Build Your Own’ Yogurt Parfait, another $7.49 breakfast dish at the River Belle Terrace.

While you can add sauce to it and also not feel like you got ripped off, the place this dish falls short is Theme. Try as I might, I can’t figure any way that a Breakfast Burrito qualifies the food of tomorrow or at all relates to a futuristic view of humanity.

I suppose it could be re-themed as an astronaut space burrito, replicated or reconstituted from ships supplies. Or how about a futuristic of some sort, with a crazy colored tortilla? Let’s a dig a little deeper into the theme bucket next time.

Conclusion

The Breakfast Burrito is a great early morning dish at Disneyland. It will fill the hungriest guest and satisfy everyone’s palate, even if some people go reaching for the hot sauce.
