MSP: Taco Riendo

I read about this in Metro Magazine. It's near my office. I've eaten about everywhere else on both sides of that block including its' former incarnation, Chiapas. Metro said it was like Chipotle, but done right with authentic meat stuffings. So, I figured I'd give it a try.

And waddya-know? They were right. I had one terrific burrito with black beans, rice, a chorizo-based guisado (cachaca?), white onions, cilantro, and a nice salsa rojo. It was huge--probably two meals if only I could restrain myself. It cost $6.50 + tax.

It was better than Chipotle. That's for certain. I'll be going back. The al pastor looked decent and there were some other stewed meat concoctions that looked like they'd be worth tasting.

If you buy 5, you get a free one...so that'd mean for $6.50 * 5 or $32.50 you get six burritos which brings the price down to $5.42.

It's just south of Sen Lak Sen Yai on Central. Across from Adelita's.
