The brick-and-mortar version of The Rooster Truck is in Pico-Robertson, and it’s serving the same excellent breakfast burrito: The Rico Suave. It’s still one of the best things to eat when you’re hungover - it has eggs, two kinds of cheese, tater tots, and avocado inside - but if you’re not craving a breakfast burrito, we recommend the chicken chorizo breakfast tacos, or the breakfast burger, which is nice and juicy, and has extremely melty cheddar on top. Whatever you get, this meal will surely cancel out whatever tequila is remaining in your stomach from last night.
