Verde Kaimuki is located in the same location of BC Burrito which thankfully closed its doors and made room for another restaurant in Kaimuki.  At first look you may think this is still BC Burrito when you walk in.  Not much has changed with the exception of the wall coverings.  We almost walked away after looking at the menu because it seemed like BC Burrito all over again.  Decided to try the place anyway and made our way in to find a few customers sitting in the booths.  Not much of a welcome from the employees so we looked at the menu hand written on the wall.  I found a menu on a clipboard on one of the tables and picked it up to take a closer look.  Burritos, Tacos, Quesadilla and Nachos were the only offerings.  We started with an order of Chips and Salsa ($3.50).  The salsa was made fresh and was good but it did not have any heat.  Wish they could have kicked this up a notch with some heat.  Decided to try the Steak Burrito ($8.50).  Add another $1.75 for Guacamole and Sour Creme and you have a $11 burrito for lunch.  I opted not to pay the extra $1.75 and took the burrito as is with Pinto Beans, Rice, Lettuce and Salsa.  Ordered it with the Hot Salsa Verde.  The burrito had some good flavor and the heat from the salsa came a bit late.  I added salsa from the Chips and Salsa to help add more flavor to the burrito.  It helped. My Daughter tried the Al Pastor Burrito ($7.50).  Filled with the same things inside the Steak Burrito plus a Pineapple and Citrus marinade.  She said it was not the best burrito and only ate a few bites.  The Chicken Taco ($3.50) was served on a fried flour tortilla rather than a corn tortilla.  The flour absorbed the oil from the chicken so the tortilla fell apart.  The flavor of the taco however was pretty good.  Not a bad taco but still nothing like tacos in San Diego or Los Angeles.  I would go back to Verde to try a few other menu items.  This was not the case with BC Burrito where I vowed never to return to again.

  1. Verde Kaimuki and BC Burrito are one and the same, except they changed their menu and interior.
