Veggie Burritos and Guests

Chef: Alexandra and Taqueria Cancun

The Menu: Burritos filled with rice, black beans, avocados, and salsa, with a side of chips.

The Goods: It was a big day at the VNHQ. We had several visitors for lunch and to make sure everybody's appetite went satisfied, Associate Publisher Colleen Holland got burritos from local favorite Taqueria Cancun.  This meal never fails, and yes, I am currently eating the half of a burrito I saved "for later" while writing this. As for our visitors, we were lucky enough to chat with Back to the Roots founders Alejandro Velez and Nikhil Arora. These are the guys who created the VN Best of Show- winning mushroom-growing kit, with which we are obsessed. Also joining us was writer Jolinda Hackett, who covers everything vegetarian on the site. With a conference room packed with talent, passion, and drive, it wasn't hard to have some great conversation. If you're in the Bay Area and are interested in learning more about Back to the Roots, check out their event in Oakland next Thursday evening, where they'll be showing off their new warehouse and providing food (plenty of mushrooms!), drinks, and entertainment. That's where you'll find us, at least.
