We decided to try this new Mexican Cantina/Restaurant for dinner last night. It is called Salsaritas and I believe it’s a chain – so you may have one in your home town! Now, if you’ll recall, Mexican food is my all-time favorite and LilZ’s DNA is built entirely of refried beans as all I ate my last trimester of my pregnancy with him was Bean Dip from our local Mexican dive. So, I take my Mexican food very seriously. I have no idea what the food is like in Mexico, but mexican food in Alabama? It’s damn good.
Well, this place had no refried beans. Let me repeat myself: NO REFRIED BEANS. Now, MrZ was all “The chicken is yummy! Salsa is hot! Vegetables are fresh!” But – did you hear? NO REFRIED BEANS. Hell, even Taco Bell has refried beans. I want to leave my Mexican restaurant (A) Smelling like grease (B) Feeling like I just at an elephant deep friend in day old grease. I like my Mexican food HEAVY and incredibly UNHEALTHY. I want my refried beans REFRIED. With sinful amounts of butter/grease/lard/whatever makes them yummy.
In short? I want to order an angioplasty with my burrito. None of this Fresh! shit for me. Bah. Black beans? NOT REFRIED? What the hell good is that going to do me?
In other words? I hated the damn place and am now craving a REAL burrito, with REAL refried beans. For breakfast. And that’s just gross. Even by my standards.
Update from 2020: I still feel the same way which is why I don’t love Chipotle or Taco Mama – two similar places that everyone loves.
