It was the lure of the Wonder Burrito at Super Mario's Food restaurant. Driving in 30 mph winds was not going to stop me. Is this weather crazy or what? Watch that falling tree! My kids teacher is obsessing about the tree in front of their house, convinced it will fall on them. But back to the burrito story.
It was a veggie Wonder Burrito. It smelled wonderful, it was 3 meals HUGE and had a kitchen sink full of roasted vegetables. I am not kidding. Go get one for yourself and a buddy – their website has a coupon, buy 1 get 1 half off. And if you visit at the right time, you'll sample pastelitos (pastries). I tried a pastry that was long and flat, dusted with rose crystal sugar. It was very good. I also had a pastry that looked like a round empanada, pastelitos de pina. They were pineapple cakes with sugared pineapple inside – YUM. At 2 for $1 my son figured we should get 20. Suuure.
The burrito had roasted broccoli, carrots, seasoned rice, avocado, zucchini, jalepenos, cabbage and I don't know what else. I ate half for lunch and the rest for dinner and now I'm remembering to take a picture of it. Oh, well. I'll just have to go back and get another one!
My son ordered tacos carne asada (seasoned steak) and it came with beans (mashed) and yellow rice. The little taste he afforded me proved delicious. Combine the beans and rice – too good.
