Last Thursday Price and I went on a burrito crawl call Burritup. I had seen some tweets, using the hash-tag #burritup, about the event so we RSVP’d to chow down on some burritos.
The first stop was Boloco at 2 Park Plaza. They had a deal for the group of us- 2 mini burritos and a fountain drink for $5. Great deal. While there they also passed around a sampling of a smoothie with nutella and marshmallow fluff. It was intense. Once our orders were done we headed outside to eat out mini’s. I got bowls to avoid the flour tortillas (gluten).
The next stop was Anna’s Taqueria. We walked along the Common and through Beacon Hill to get there. I can’t lie, I don’t like Anna’s burritos. At all. I have an issue with their meat, actually chopped meat in general, at least with the Boloco bowls I can look at it before taking a bite. So I passed my complimentary free burrito pass on to Price so he could save it for another day. He used his free burrito pass happily. I ended up getting some chips and guac and a horchata. I will pass on burritos at Anna’s but I will never pass up on their horchata since it was so good.
After both burritos at both locations, Price had a food baby. We named him Jesus seeing fitting that it was a Spanish name.
While there they made us The Cubio. They pitch this as a 3′ long burrito but I have to say it’s much smaller than that. It’s 3 12″ tortillas overlapped and stuffed full, but def not 3′ long. Do the math- it’s not possible. Regardless of the exact size of it, was entertaining to watch it being made. Also entertaining to watch 2 guys have a lady and the tramp moment with it as they took a bite from each end.
