Come hungry! King's Chef is THE place downtown to go for breakfast, comfortable, casual, and friendly. Their burritos are amazing, though you will not be disappointed with anything you order. If it's crowded, don't give up - it's worth the wait! The service is fast...More

I agree with ordering it from their website. Our waitress told us locally you can find it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but our California stores don't carry them. We also loved the green chili sauce!
