Nothing better than Cole slaw and Russian dressing on a sandwich. Classic combo well executed. Also, I love the open kitchen right then. I was able to chat with the cook while he made my sandwiches. Top 3 sandwich places of mine all time.

Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast burrito is the BEST around! Eggs are fresh, tots don't taste frozen and tortilla is not soggy. If you want to treat someone to an epic breakfast this is the way to go! Always a hit when I grab some to take into the office. These aren't wimpy little burritos either. You can eat half for breakfast and half for lunch. Come hungry!

Breakfast Burrito

This is the ace in the hole for any of those finding themselves wrung out after a long night of imbibing. Nothing too crazy here that would wreck your already struggling system and just enough grease and calories and robustness to bring you back to a semi-used state (I'm 35, "good as new" isn't on the menu any more). Add on a little hair of the dog to your order and you are solid set for another day/night/time is a fallacy of disrespecting your meat suit. While my cohorts order this every single time they go in, I go for one of the tots instead if I am not actively trying to excise the previous nights' demons from my innards. Also, pickled onions on everything. All day. All night. Triple up. You're welcome.

The best burrito I've ever had! I only come here when I'm craving a good breakfast burrito because they have the best!!

Braised Pork (Chashu)

This is my all time favorite sandwhich. The flavors pair nicely. It is light but filling and very satisfying for a meal that includes asian flavors in sandwhich form. I highly reccomend it. It is great!

Breakfast Burrito

I've had my fair share of breakfast burritos in SoCal so I can safely say that The Trough has one of, if not the best breakfast burritos out there! If I could I would get one every morning. It has everything you need to start your day off right. All fresh, so tasty, you can't help but to smile when taking your first bite :)

Breakfast Burrito

These are by far the BEST breakfast burritos in the area by a long shot! They have all different types of proteins that you can add, but the chorizo is SO good! Definitely better fresh than through a third party delivery. These are so good, my husband and I have now been here three sundays in a row. It's becoming our new routine. MUST TRY!

Chili Cheese Tots

Very solid chili cheese tots. Could maybe do with some better cheese but good ol' waxy cheddar still slaps. Every time we come here each person has to get their own but really they are probably big enough for 2; we are just greedy. Extra pickled onions is the way to go. Triple onions if you love yourself. Consider extra sour cream if you want to be comatose.
