Shrimp Burrito Falls Short

Last weekend a few of us hit the Purple Cactus in JP for dinner. I was in a wacky mood, so I got the wackiest thing on the menu.

I ordered the shrimp burrito with a spinach tortilla (an option I did not expect) and waited patiently.

It was so close to being excellent, but a few details blew it. So, if anyone who reads this frequents the Purple Cactus, please give the chef my recommendations:

1. Heat the shrimp. They're waiting on ice. Cold shrimp + hot beans = bad burrito.

2. Change up the cheese. They use this super fine shredded cheese that just didn't sit well with me.

If they take care of that, this burrito would be killer. Let's see how much recipe influence I have...

This Purple Cactus meal was rated: 3.8.
