We meet for lunch maybe four or five times a year, Richard and I, and I have never yet taken a photo of my food. But years of blogging emboldens a person. Out came the camera.
This gorgeous hunk of hubba-hubba is a burrito de camaron, or shrimp burrito, from my new secret boyfriend, Mariscos Ixtapa Seafood & Grill. It was smokey and shrimp-y -- the burrito, not the restaurant -- and full of cactus (which I loved) and OH MY GAHHHHHH I'M GETTING HUNGRY. Yes, I photographed a burrito as big as my head, but really, wouldn't you? This baby was a love letter, after all.
And there was this.
Friday was a half day for me. Lunch called for a beer. Just one; I'm not an animal.
Mariscos Ixtapa is my new favorite place in Chico.
