Frozen Food Review: Red’s Organic Chicken, Cilantro & Lime Burrito

Details: Official site is https://www.redsallnatural.com/product/organic-chicken-cilantro-lime-burrito/

Score: 6.7/10

I did a review for a Red’s frozen burrito yesterday and this is about the same level of tastiness. Whereas the steak and cheddar burrito was a red sauced burrito, this is more white or transparent. You can really taste the lime and cilantro, which is nice. As I said yesterday, this burrito is nice for when you’re desperate for food, but the fast food tacos at Taco bell are still superior, simply because they are fresher and use fresh vegetables.

Frozen Food Review: Red’s Steak & Cheddar Burrito

Score: 6.7/10

This burrito is exactly what you’d expect to find in a 7-Eleven. It’s not terrible, but not great. It’s tolerable, but the purpose of a food item like this is to be there when you are at your most desperate. When you are drunk, or stuck somewhere and starving, one of these things will save your life. It’s fast, easy to prepare (microwavable) and taste decent enough.

However, I will say that while I’m glad I have this in the freezer when I am at my most hungry and almost all food businesses are closed, the cheap tacos of Taco Bell are still better than this.

So, if you live in the middle of no where and there are no Taco Bells near your house, this product will suffice. However, if you live near a Taco Bell, you’re better of going there to get your taco fix because the trash tacos at Taco Bell are still better than this.

Food Stall Review: La Taqueria

Details: Located at 3480 S Maryland Pkwy #104, Las Vegas, NV 89169. Official site is http://boulevardmall.com/directory/la-taqueria/

Score: 6.3/10

I was in the mall for some Escape the Room and decided to eat here. No idea why we chose to eat at this specific Mexican place since there are a couple in the food court.

The mall is a standard American mall in that it’s kind of empty and slightly depressing. The food court was also mostly empty.

I ordered a beef burrito for about seven or eight dollars. It came with some chips. There’s a topping bar with sauces and stuff. Noteworthy is that the red sauce is surprisingly spicy, in a good way I guess.

Overall, the food was all right. This place wasn’t bad or shady, but not going to get no Michelin stars.

Food Truck Review: Big D’s Grub Truck

Details: Found it on 6th Avenue, between 50th Street and 51st Street, in Manhattan, New York City. The official site is http://bigdsgrub.com/

Big D’s Grub Truck is a Asian fusion food truck that serves tacos, burrito bowls and sandwiches, but with Asian marinated meats. In other words, this is just another Asian style taco truck in a sea of Asian style taco truck.

I got the bulgogi “Grinder,” which is just a sandwich. It had the bulgogi/beef with pickled vegetables in it. It was okay. It cost around ten dollars. It kind of reminded of a bahn mi with bulgogi in it.

Overall, it was okay. It’s unlikely I’ll ever go back if I see the truck again.

Restaurant Review: Korilla BBQ

Details: Located at 55th and Broadway, New York, NY 10019, among other locations. Official site is http://korillabbq.com/

I’ve been to the Korilla food truck a number of times now so I figure I should write a review. The Korilla food truck is pretty much the same concept as Chipotle and Indikitch, except with Korean flavors. I’ve been to the food truck a number of times, but I’ve never been to the brick and mortar location near St. Marks.

The food truck gives you two options: bowl or burrito. Like Chipotle, it’s the same ingredients, just different forms. You then choose your meat (bulgogi, pork, chicken, or tofu), rice (kim chee rice or sticky rice), cheese or pico de gallo, and a small assortment of pickled vegetables. You also get to choose a sauce. The truck moves around the city and you can track it on their twitter page (https://twitter.com/korillabbq). The price comes in at around $10, which is about Chipotle and Indikitch prices.

It’s pretty good eating and convenient for those of us working in the city. There is slightly less food here than at Chipotle or Indikitch, but it’s nice to get some Korean flavors in an area of the city with few Korean restaurants. Definitely convenient for those working in the city and tired of the restaurants in the surrounding area of your office. While I would avoid eating this on my days off, it is a nice thing to have for lunch on a work day.

If you want a recommendation on what to get, I usually get the spicy pork with kim chee rice, with everything, and with Korilla sauce (a kind of Chipotle mayonnaise). I don’t normally like spicy food, but this wasn’t too spicy.
