I know my lunch blogging days are behind me for now, but I've just gotta tell you about this burrito I had last week. Every Friday at work here we usually hit up El Triumfo over on East Berkley, an establishment I find most charming for the fact that it's a Mexican place run by Hungarians. But aside from that, they make a damn fine burrito.
It's generally the sort of stuff you'd expect- chicken, steak, pork, veggies, and so on. However, it appears that there are a few gems that don't make an appearance on the regular menu, most notably the falafel burrito. It's exactly what you might expect- your standard Mexican burrito, but without the usual meat or veggies, it's falafel instead. And naturally that might seem like the sort of thing that could go either way, but I'm here to assure you that it's totally awesome. While the spices in a falafel might not seem like a natural pairing for salsa and guacamole, it's a surprisingly complimentary difference of flavors.
I have no idea what other surprises might lie in wait off the menu there, but I highly recommend you at least try this one. Rumor is that it might be the sort of thing to call ahead for unless you want to wait around for them to fry up the falafels, but I imagine it'd be worth the wait anyway.
