Among the new breed of slabwagons to congregate along Bayshore in the early '10s, friendly Tacos El Triunfo does a wonderful beef bourguignon, as well as a simply delightful baked Alaska; also, don't miss the hot olives appetizer. Wait — sorry, that's someplace else. But the burritos here seem real good, and the staff is indeed amiable. Minimal outdoor seating. Cash only.

This strong debut-in-foil had a lot going for it, most notably a bedrock-solid foundation of burstage-proof construction and hot bites, as well as a heap of freshly grilled carne asada that was juicy and flavorful. Even if our panel didn't appreciate the overly chewy tortilla, we were into the ace refried beans and 100% melted cheese, the volume of which actually bordered on excessive. And the avocado! The liberal dose of avocado slices here managed to ratchet the vegetables rating up to seven mustaches virtually on its own, along with some stray onion here and there. The ingredient mix was mostly effective, apart from the rice and meat experiencing some bunched moments, and the whole package was intangibly infallible and sized to please. Score one to the good.
