A Word On Baby Spinach

This past weekend I ran into Ethan, Chicago's Junior burrito analyst, at a Cystic Fibrosis fund raiser. Though Ethan is on a permanent leave of absence from burrito reporting duties, his curiosity in all things burrito and regular readership of Burrito Blog remains strong.

Regarding a recent post, he asked why only the Anna's MIT location has spinach, and why does it have spinach at all?

Anna's MIT has spinach because only that location has the breakfast burrito, which contains the aforementioned leafy vegetable as an optional ingredient. But if you want spinach on your Mexican plate or burrito get there early, because they put the espinacas away at lunch time.

As Popeye would say:

I'm Strong to the Finish 'Cause I Eats Me Spinach

The Best Looking Salsa

Let this be a model for all other salsas. The tomatoes are so fresh and red, the diced onions so perfectly sized, and the cilantro plentiful but not overbearing. Does that count as three servings of veggies?

To all the cilantro haters out there, start your own blog. I'll hear all complaints about Burrito Blog but don't mess with my cilantro.

The steak plate featured was from Anna's MIT location in the early morning. Breakfast, baby, breakfast.

This Anna's Taqueria meal was rated: 7.7.

Anthony Saves The Day

My parents were moving. They had lots of stuff to carry. No one likes moving, and no one likes helping other people move, either.

Anthony, seen here a few weeks ago at Romano's in Roslindale, stepped up and came to the rescue.

You are what you eat, so the transitive property concludes:

If Anthony = a steak burrito from Romano's, and Anthony = pure furniture moving muscle, then a steak burrito from Romano's = pure furniture moving muscle.

Problem solved.

Burrito Blog Is Back From Lunch

Hello! Sorry it took so long to get back on the horse after that little hiatus. It won't happen again.

I present to you an Anna's creation to be had only at the MIT location. Steak plate with espinacas instead of lechuga (spinach not lettuce). Best plate ever? Just might be. Last summer there was a blight on spinach; this treat was an impossibility.

I'm hooked on spinach. Lettuce is for farm animals.

See also: the elusive breakfast burrito and the more elusive breakfast taco for other MIT only specialties.

This Anna's Taqueria meal was rated: 8.5.
