  • In this city, you gotta fortify yourself for the morning commute.

  • You've got to get a breakfast burrito, the pride of Los Angeles and a primo car food.

  • Unlike eating an açaí bowl while driving, which requires both hands, and is dangerous for everybody.

  • A breakfast burrito is a much safer driving food.

  • Oh, that's cute.

  • Cute burrito, mua.

  • There's a place in the city, actually, a bunch of places, where you can get a cheese-wrapped breakfast burrito to start your morning right.

  • You just have to know where Matt parked his car.

  • When I first got started, I was working at a breakfast burrito restaurant.

  • I had about two grand saved up, I think.

  • And I said, well, screw it, I'm done.

  • Matt here is a genuine hustler and the owner of Lowkey burritos, pop-up food joint.

  • He runs out of his minivan.

  • After my second kid, I was kind of wondering like I need to do something with my life.

  • I wanted to do a pop-up, and I quit my job.

  • I told myself, I'm gonna give it about six months, and it kind of all happened.

  • Snowball from there.

  • What can I get for you? Eleven, please.

  • Ah, there it is.

  • When the breakfast rush hits, Lowkey burritos can get low-key hectic.

  • Quickly, quickly, like faster than you've ever done it before.

  • Matt handles it with grace.

  • Thank you so much, guys.

  • Appreciate you guys all hanging tight with me.

  • He can't help it that everyone wants a bite of this perfect burrito, stuffed with charred onions and peppers, egg crispy taters, all snuggled under a blanket of molten cheese.

  • Imagine the crackling texture of an egg roll but the taste of a mounted pepper jack.

  • There we go, baby.

  • What is life without this?

  • On a good day, Matt flips, folds, seals and serves 70 breakfast burritos in just a few hours time.

  • We started getting like tourists, people from neighboring cities.

  • Really good, really good, really crunchy.

  • I just saw the commotion, so I pulled up.

  • This is bomb.

  • His creativity, when it comes to the food, it's something else.

  • You see him cooking? He looks happy. It gives it a better taste.

  • Tell you, you guys got to try this, bro.

  • Oh man save me a bite of that.

  • Best part of starting early is that Matt can be home by lunch to hang with his family.

  • We only have this time, so it's really important to do what you want to do.

  • And I wanted to make sure that I had time to spend with my kids and my family.

  • Some people just like to jump all in it and go get a big fat loan or something, but that's not the way that I want to do it.

  • It's not easy, but it's not supposed to be easy, I guess.

  • I know I keep saying it, but thank you guys so much.

  • I really appreciate you coming by.

  • - Oh-oh. - That's some bullshit.

  • My keys got sauce.

  • Oh, I hate it when that happens.

In this city, you gotta fortify yourself for the morning commute.
