Always a good time in San Diego :-) W always makes a point to cram some food food in every visit, this being no exception! Lucha Libre was one our must-hit list for the weekend, and it didn't disappoint!
Since it was featured on Man vs. Food, I expected a crazy-intense experience from Lucha Libre. I have actually never seen the show (stop judging!), but from what I heard I thought that anything featured on that show would be a beeline to my first heart attack.
It turns out that it was a pre-challenge foodie showcase, phew! With big burritos served in frisbees and a dedicated booth for champions in Mexican wrestling masks, StrongBad would feel right at home. The menu was pretty expansive, but W insisted that anything other than the Surfin' California would be a mistake and sharing was NOT an option :Þ
Grilled Steak, Shrimp, Fresh French Fries, Avocado, Pico De Gallo, Cheese, & Super Secret Chipotle
I normally get fish burritos and fish tacos (no secret there...) but this time I went for a surf 'n' turf flavour - with a side of guac. Mmm. Despite my friend's insistence that it is what truly made it awesome, I didn't care much for the fries - but the steak was deee-lish :-). I rarely get steak burritos because I find that the steak is generally overdone, but this was definitely an exception.
I poked more and more guac into my burrito to satisfy my avocado-tooth. Burritos came out fast, food was great, and even though it was super busy it wasn't hard to grab a spot to sit since most people seemed to be grabbing and going.
