Eating in America is a great, great thing. You sit down at the table and are immediately met with ice waters and baskets of bread… for free! Oh my goodness! I used to live with this “luxury” my entire life, and now I’m realizing how totally awesome I had it. You live you learn, eh?
So, when it comes to Mexican food, it’s not just the tacos and burritos I’ve been missing while being in Australia; it’s the free stuff that comes with it. Oh yeah, I’m talking about the chips and salsa!
Our first night in Chicago landed us quite late, but it’s a late-night culture over here in America (unlike the late-night culture in Sydney). We were easily able to walk a couple of blocks and find a glorious, glorious Mexican restaurant to continue our taco tour of America.
I was pretty content with ordering a few tacos, but Pat had to go burrito… GIANT burrito. Seriously, I have never seen a burrito this big, and neither had he! America, you rock!
This is what a good evening entails.
How can you not love a place where you can basically fill up on free stuff before getting the actual meal?!
