Breakfast burritos at Ma ‘n Pa Grocery do not disappoint

Side Bites is an ongoing series highlighting local eats and the vibrant food culture in Long Beach. The video series can be seen first online on the Hi-lo Instagram page

Sometimes you just wake up and need a burrito, you know? Well, that’s how I woke up today, so I called in an order to Ma ‘n Pa Grocery and hopped on my bike. You wouldn’t know it if you wandered by, but the little corner store in Belmont Heights might have the best breakfast burritos in town, and it’s a well-known secret in the middle of a residential neighborhood.

Just a few blocks away from the Colorado Lagoon and Marine Stadium, Ma ‘n Pa sits on the corner of Colorado Street and Roycroft Avenue and opens every day at 6:30 a.m. Go try ‘em out, and let me know in the comments where I should try next!
