Nestled in this seemingly quiet part of Downtown San Jose is a little Mexican Taqueria known as Iguanas. This place is an easily recognizable landmark in the downtown core and has been feeding the many hungry students that attend the neighboring San Jose State University since 1994. The smiling green iguana is their mascot and is also synonymous with generous portions, fresh ingredients, reasonable prices and some of the best Mexican food in the state.
Behind the smiling iguana is something so horrible that even Man vs. Food’s Adam Richman had to walk away from it. In it’s underbelly is something that weighs nearly 5 lbs and is over 18 inches in length. Ladies and gentleman, this horrible beast is known as Burritozilla!
During my road trip down to the US, I hit some pretty cool eateries. Besides the Pho Garden Pho Challenge (which I will post about later this week), the great Burritozilla was on my hit list of monster food challenges. Did I finish this remarkably gruesome (but extremely tasty) creation? Check out the video to see how it all went down…
What an upset! With only 1/4 of Burritozilla left, I tapped out and let the lizard win. Damn!
However, with the knowledge gained from tackling two of California’s greatest food challenges, I was able to take what I learned and apply it to my challenge against Seattle’s Southwestern Exposure 12 Egg Omelet Challenge. More on that in an upcoming post so stay tuned!
I was cruising by my blog the other day and realized that I haven’t updated here in over a month. I’m sorry for the lack of updates. It appears that Twitter has ruined me due to the instant gratification provided by a simple tweet out to my followers. I’ve also been quite busy with Futurelooks. As you may have noticed, there is a ton of new content over there and I hope you have a chance to head there and enjoy it. I will try to update here a little more often.
Yes, the picture above is me once again taking down something that is too large for a regular human being. They call it “Bob’s Big Burger”. I had it at some weird eatery that I’ve forgotten the name of while in Fort Saskatchewan for Fragapalooza. The menu”Dared Me to Finish It” so of course I finished it. There is apparently a bigger burger at some dinner which I will need to try next year.
Here are a few noteworthy points about what I’ve been up to in the last while…
