It’s finally here: National Burrito Day.
Sure, it’s a made-up holiday, though any forgive to indulge in a celestial multiple of tortilla, meat, rice, beans and cheese is A-OK in my book.
And hey, there’s no sequence that says we can’t brew things adult on Burrito Day. Deep-fry that bad child and, bam, chimichanga! Add something honeyed and make it a dessert chimi. Or conduct over to Pinterest and squeeze a recipe for a burrito pizza.
Do we wish fries with that burrito? Head over to Del Taco. Participating stores are charity a giveaway tiny sequence of Crinkle-Cut Fries when we buy a two-for-$5 Classic Burritos deal.
There are so many good places in Southern Utah to applaud this critical culinary date. If we need assistance choosing, here are some of a restaurants The Spectrum has reviewed in a past year, in no sold order:
Angélica’s Mexican Grill
Angélica’s serves mostly normal Mexican offerings, though a small things make it mount out. It has a patio. It has alcohol. It has a torpedo salsa bar. What’s not to like? Everything is delicious, though a chile verde stands out as a sold treat, surprisingly prohibited and partial of a lovingly polished recipe.
