We decided to take a little road trip to Portland over E’s spring break. Of course, while we were there we could not resist hitting up one of the numerous food truck pods.  I know that Korean/Asian-fusion taco trucks abound these days, but I hadn’t seen a ton of Korean burritos, mostly just tacos or kimchi quesadillas.  This burrito, from Koi Fusion was fabulous.  The proportions of meat to kimichi fried rice to veggies (I skipped the cheese) was almost dead on.  My only minor complaint was that I would have liked if the ingredients were more evenly distributed inside the burrito – most of my meat was at the top and by the time I got to the last few bites, all I had left was rice.  But I still ate the whole thing.  And thought about it for days afterwards.

Desayuno burrito, from Julia’s in Wallingford. It had scrambled eggs, scallions, cheese and a ton of bacon, topped with salsa, sour cream and more cheese.

We decided to check out a new place for breakfast yesterday.  On a whim, we pulled into a strip mall after seeing a sign for “Best Mexican Breakfast in Allen.”  Yeah, we’re suckers.  But a quick check on Yelp revealed that the claim was legit.  I found my sandwich looked better than it tasted; it was a bit bland (and light on sausage). Troy generously offered to swap half his breakfast burrito for half of my sandwich.  Burrito was definitely the way to go.
