What do you do when you have brought lunch with you but a friend asks if you would be interested in eating out? You say yes! 😎 My friend wouldn't have felt bad being turned down, but I definitely would have and spent the afternoon whining over it.
@el_gringo_bh serves up some Mexican cuisine and is based inside the food court at Seef Mall. We ordered the cheese & mushroom empanadas, chicken burrito bowl and a chicken steak burrito. The most appealing thing about a burrito or a burrito bowl to me is that it's a whole meal in one. You have the protein, the fiber, the carbs (And God I love my carbs! ) and some fat! Okay, a lot of fat. Since there is a generous amount of cream and cheese! But I am not complaining about that. When life goes south stock up on the fat, because it goes to the heart is my mantra. . The burrito bowl was definitely a hit with me. The main difference between the chicken burrito and chicken steak burrito is the use of chicken steak and this comes in a wrap. I have always wondered how one has rice wrapped in bread, because where I hail from they would look at you strangely. But I am getting rid of my biases with food one dish at a time and this certainly appealed to me. I speak about the empanadas at the end sheerily because I was disappointed with the serving size of this. While I would give full marks on flavor - cheese, mushroom, pastry, what's not to love?! They come in three and are mini leaving you slightly disappointed.
Lunch hour was over and I returned to the desk working away on my desktop on a happy stomach (but a little grudgingly because let's be honest, all you want to do is nap after meals like these. ) #foodelightsme #bahrain #bahrainblogger #middleeastfood
