Good Saturday

Yesterday was a pretty good day as far as doing things goes.

I discovered a new Mexican place because they added me on twitter. California Burrito is located in Auckland City, in a tiny hole in the wall.

They have a similar style to Mexicali Fresh in that they make your burrito in front of you, but you have less control over what they put in. They asked me when I ordered if I wanted it extra spicy, and if I wanted guacamole, and that was it.

While we waited for our burritos, we sipped on some Mexican sodas. I got a pineapple flavoured one, and Daz got a lime one. They reminded me of the cheap sodas you can get in 24 packs at the Warehouse, but with more depth of flavour, and less carbonated (which, surprisingly, was to my liking).

Finally we got our burritos. I ordered a California burrito (as that is my favourite at Mexicali Fresh, and I wanted to compare). Rice, black beans, pico de gallo, guac, sour cream, cheese, and chicken.


Mexicali wins. Hands down. This was a very tasty burrito, and I definitely recommend eating there, but when you go to Mexicali and have a California Burrito there, you'll understand why.

I don't think I've done a post about Mexicali, so that's next on the cards. I don't think the boys have been there, so that's our next trip!

To wrap up the trip into town, Daz took us to a place called Hulucat Tea House for me to try my first Pearl Milk Tea. However, instead of getting the pearls in my milk tea, I got chocolate pudding (Daz recommended it). Chocolate milk tea with chocolate pudding? HOLY CRAP. That was amazing! So delicious, so chocolatey, and such a crazy experience having chunks of chocolate pudding sliding up the straw and into your mouth.

Haha. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to taking Mary there :) And apparently another good place is Momo Tea.

Saturday was a good day.
