The Chef: El Burrito Express
The Menu: No lie, we had burritos. We know, we know, with a title so ambiguous it might have been difficult to decipher just what exactly we ate, but let us assure you—they were big, delicious burritos. Whole-wheat tortillas stuffed with rice, black beans, guacamole, lettuce, and salsa generously surrounded by crispy chips made a filling, fabulous lunch.
The Goods: No, it isn't just that bienvenidos makes a convenient alliteration with burritos (though when have you ever known us to pass one of those up?!); we really were doing some welcoming today at lunch. That's right—it's Ms. Melissa's first official day as an editorial assistant, and if there's one thing that says "welcome to the team" like a big, beany burrito. As it turned out, Melissa told us that her first priority during any trip to California is always to get one as soon as possible, so we were thrilled to welcome her appropriately.
