Scratch Burrito & Happy Tap opened on Tuesday in the former home of Shazz, and quickly inspired discussions of 1) the geographic boundaries of the Berkeley neighborhood, 2) how much a burrito should cost and 3) whether burritos are authentic Mexican fare. But ultimately, no matter the origins of the featured menu item, the real question is how it tastes. See also: - Photos: Scratch Burrito & Happy Tap opens today in Berkeley - A $10 burrito?

And Amy 1014 has an opinion on that:

I went today after this write-up. If you want a $5 lunch, go to Subway. This was so good and not your typical burrito ingredients. It is not your typical burrito and if you want authentic Mexican or whatever said commenters would like to call it, this is not it. I applaud and more than appreciate the creativity in what they brought to a burrito to make it their own. I already love Scratch Burrito and Happy Tap and welcome them to the neighborhood. The place is also pretty hip inside with a great bar.

Have you been to Scratch Burrito yet? What's your favorite burrito in town?
