The Rooster Opens Friday ~ The Rico Suave Breakfast Burrito Is Getting a Home on Pico

[dropcap size=big]T[/dropcap]he Rooster – and its famous Rico Suave breakfast burrito – has found a permanent home in Pico-Robertson. After making a name for itself as a taco truck often spotted on Abbot Kinney, The Rooster is opening its first brick and mortar this Friday at the corner of Pico and Robertson at 8809 W. Pico Blvd.

Chef Rouha Sadighi and her business partner started The Rooster in 2016 as a food truck when Sadighi made a name for herself by winning Cutthroat Kitchen. 

The popular Westside food truck will now be mostly retired, used exclusively for catering and special events, according to representatives for the restaurant. 

The Rooster became one of L.A.'s favorite breakfast food trucks thanks in large part to the Rico Suave. The breakfast burrito stuffed with eggs, bacon, tater tots, avocado, cilantro crema, salsa, and a cheddar and cotija queso blend. 

The new restaurant will serve its famed breakfast menu all-day in addition to some new non breakfast items like the Andy Garcia, a Cuban sandwich with swiss cheese, ham, roasted pork, pickles and mustard on a garlic butter baguette.
