I have unintentionally been on a protein overload lately and lunch this afternoon was no exception. Portland now has an all vegan taqueria truck called Los Gorditos II and today was the grand opening. Hooray, hooray, hooray! Tim and I are lucky enough to live fairly close to the taco truck, so we walked there to fill our grumbling bellies. The best part? The kind folks preparing and serving the food were giving away free burritos, sodas, tortilla chips, and fun cookies (I think they might have been Mexican tea cakes)!!!!! Despite the large crowd gathering in the lot, we only waited maybe five minutes before our burritos were ready. I opted for the Regular Burrito (simple name, no?): a flour tortilla filled with beans, rice, lettuce, tomato, and avocado. Tim had the Fajita Burrito: a flour tortilla stuffed with grilled veggies, soy curls, beans, rice, onion, and cilantro. The final word? BEST BEANS AND RICE EVER. We pretty much plopped down on the sidewalk, unwrapped the (HUGE) burritos and chewed in happy silence, commenting briefly on the yumminess. We will definitely be heading back to Los Gorditos II for future meals.
Mind the bite marks, but how else will you see the inside?
Now I am off to work out the recipe for the Skanky Pumpkin Squares.
