Re: California Style Mexican Food In Zürich!

I have heard conflicting stories about the salt, but I regularly cook lentils in chicken broth which contains some salt with no problems.

Interesting read here.

Ever eaten in a real Mexican taqueria? Consider the flies* culturally accurate ambiance.

ETA: *the stomach knots too.
It was just the thought I might have swallowed one, and it was still moving around hours later. I know California Mexican, even Baja. I think Burrito Brothers can use some input and refinement, and hope they can manage to pull it through.

Re: California Style Mexican Food In Zürich!

I ate at Burrito bros for the first time today, and 4hrs later, lunch is still revisiting me, must be the authentic taste of Mexico I had a pulled pork something or other, I don't think I could recommend it, unless it was a toss up between that or a viewpoint Falafel after the pub.

Re: California Style Mexican Food In Zürich!

Anyone know what happened to Burrito Bros on Hardstrasse? Wanted to go there recently and it seems to have closed down.

Re: California Style Mexican Food In Zürich!

The last time I went, the kitchen was chock full of flies (bluebottle type things) and I had gutrot for the next 2 or 3 days.

Shame, as despite that, it was still bloody tasty!

Perhaps they were going for full Mexican authenticity?! In all seriousness though, I've eaten there loads of times and always found the food great and never had any "issues" afterwards. Will be a great shame if it's gone for good.
