Today’s burrito is from what was formerly L’Avenida, now a part of Tart to Tart simply as Mexican Grill. A shrimp burrito mojado.
Shrimp and enchilada sauce?! You might ask. But isn’t that gross?
Yea. It was. But I ate it anyway. And I ate it all.
Is it because I am Japanese that I find the grotesque beautiful? Butoh and Ero Guro. Google that shit. That my friends is the dance going on in my belly. The beauty digesting within me. Sexy kinda.
It’s not the burrito’s fault. It was my perverse imagination that created this meal monstrosity. It sounded good. But I don’t think things through all the way.
Whatever. It’s still a burrito and I loved it.
100 Days of Burritos: Day 61 Pre Game.
Today’s burrito was a Super Carne Asada Burrito from La Palma. In the deep mission 24th Street, where the burrito is king.
They grill the tortilla and I am a fan. Super fresh. They are a market and make a lot of the stuff there. It’s a great spot.
I’ve been getting black beans lately because they are supposed to be healthier. They are a little drier, pinto are a smidge tastier, but I get the smug satisfaction that I am being health conscious. Either way I’m full of farts.
Today’s burrito was from the work spot, Carmelina’s. A BB, Breakfast Burrito.
I got sour cream again. IT’S SO YUMMY. I cannot stop. I need to watch out though, I am getting squishy, but at the same time the quality of my life is incredible. I am so happy.
So, I have been writing these lil burrito blurbs, blurritos if you will, for about a week. I hope people read and enjoy them, however, I hope no one expects to learn anything from them outside of what I ate that day.
I just like eating burritos. I have no inside knowledge on burrito spots. I have no discerning taste, so don’t expect to hear great reviews. Everything will just be yummy. I do have some burrito eating techniques, but generally, nothing new to add to the burrito world.
Just a simple girl who loves burritos. Don’t expect anything of me. You will be disappointed.
Today’s burrito is from good ol’ reliable Gordo Taqueria on 9th Ave.
Grilled chicken. Rice. Beans. Cheese. Guac. Sour Cream. Jalapenos. Hot sauce. Chips on the side.
I could not help myself and had to get sour cream in my burrito again. Since it was going to be cool and creamy, I decided to add jalapenos for heat, flavor, and crunch. I am a genius.
Chips are a very necessary part of the burrito experience. It was once believed that dinosaurs ate stones to help aid in the breaking up and digestion of pants and leaves they were not able to chew properly. This being recently found to be untrue, IS IN FACT THE VERY STRATEGY BEHIND CHIPS IN BURRITO CONSUMPTION.
The burrito is a very squishy food. It is mushy in the mouth. Chips help create friction and add structure to each bite and chew. They also help keep tortilla from sticking to the roof of the mouth and front teeth.
I got mad respect for taquerias that make their own chips.
Today’s burrito was a carnitas burrito from the work spot.
Went nuts today. Got sour cream. Boy oh boy was it an extra bit of yummy.
In having a burrito every day, I try and cut calories where I can. Usually that means no sour cream. But today’s Monday, woke up a little late, and I needed a little boost.
It’s going to be tempting to get it again tomorrow. We shall see.
Today’s burrito was from the Market Street Taqueria Can-Cun. Carne Asada Super Burrito.
Real big fan of Taqueria Can-Cun. I really like that they grill the tortillas and use avocado instead of guacamole. PLUS, I think their green salsa has avocado in it and me gusta.
The thing with eating burritos everyday is, that they leave you with an unquenchable thirst that kicks in right before bed. I end up drinking tons of water before I go to sleep, then wake up in the middle of the night having to pee.
I don’t blame the burrito. I blame myself for poor planning. I should drink water when I eat, like a normal person. Or I should just wait the 20 minutes it will take for all the water I drink before bed to cycle into urine by writing a blog or something. ;) So, as you’re reading this, know you are helping me make pee pee and helping prevent a bed wetting.
I’ve powered through the thirst before, only to wake up gasping for water in the middle of the night. Also, I can’t imagine salting myself into a jerky can be good for the old internal organs. Dehydration, man. No bueno para tu cuerpo.
Anyhow. It’s time to drain and go to bed. Goodnight.
Black Bean Breakfast Burrito from Sonoma Muffin Works, purchased at Martha Brothers Coffee.
Starting off my day right. First things first. I poppa. Freaks all the honeys. Dummies. Play Boy Bunnies. Those wantin’ money. Biggie lyrics aside. It’s great that the first thing I got to do today was consume a burrito.
Kind of a cheat. It is smaller and more manageable than a regular burrito. It still counts.
