The Chef: El Burrito Express
The Menu: Um, burritos, as you may have already guessed. Today's were the perfect combination of rice, black beans, salsa, lettuce, and avocado, all wrapped in whole-wheat tortillas. For sides? Salsa and chips, naturally. There really is something beautiful about the big, hearty chunks of avocado that grace these tummy-filling treats.
The Goods: We're deep in the trenches of finalizing the cover for our July+August summer issue, which means we had the perfect excuse for ordering in for lunch today. In addition to the awesome meal, we got to enjoy the company of Melissa's gentleman caller, Hayato, who's visiting from Japan. It was wonderful to be able to share the first sunny day in what feels like months with our guest, and to properly introduce him to Californian cuisine—aka, burritos.
