The Facts: I love Mexican food, I'm half Mexican (on my mothers side... The home cooking side), and I come from the high holy land of Mexican food: San Diego (the imperial capital of Southern Californian Mexican cuisine, and arguably the best Mexican food in the world, it's true)
My Aussie fiancé loves Mexican food too, but understand I'm a bit hesitant to try anything calling itself a burrito so close to the South Pole.
Today I caved and tried Aussie "Mexican food"
this is a "shredded beef burrito." All in all it wasn't horrible. Sure it wasn't the forearm sized behemoth of Carne Asada, guacamole, and cheese (hold the Pico) that I grew up on, but it wasn't terrible; more like what you could get at Chipotle on its best day. One of the weirdest elements was quinoa instead of rice, and no option to add guac. Also the hot sauce options were limited: F*ck You (spicy) and Jane Fonda (mild)... No idea the reference
In the back ground you might have noticed something vaguely resembling horchata
Horchata and Lime-Pina. Both were pretty average, and I'd likely skip the Aguas Frescas next time.
