That's six every five days! Yow. On top of all the other review meals he had to eat during that time.

    Wowza. I'll bet he spent a ton on beano.

      That's likely to be a lot of unfinished burritos.....

        His MO, I'll add, was apparently to get a super burrito AND two tacos at each place.....(belch)

          I imagine he only ate a few bites of each, just enough to get a feel for it.

          He didn't try El Tonayense's home base, at 24th and Shotwell.

            I used to feel sorry for the staff writer at the Pioneer Press who, for the 12 days of the Minnesota state Fair this year ate nothing but "foods on a stick" and set a goal to try, at least once, ever food item at the Fair available on a stick. I feel sorrier for the burrito guy. :)

              And now you know who buys those half gallon size containers of Pepto-Bismol (tm) at Costco .....

                This reminds me of Frank Bruni's recent (well, May) road trip across the USA as chronicled in the NYT.
