IT WOULD BE El CRIMINAL NOT TO!
When was the last time you challenged yourself to something BIG? Could this be the year that you take on El Criminal? A beast of a burrito, probably the biggest you’ve ever seen!
El Criminal weighs in at a colossal 5lb. Three tortillas, loaded with all 3 meats (chicken tinga, ancho beef and carnitas); rice, beans, pico de gallo, lettuce and cheese are added before it’s rolled. We’ll then smother the burrito in sour cream and all three of Mission’s fresh salsas from mild to very hot (salsa verde, chipotle and habanero). But, we’re not finished there, to add some crunch it’s surrounded by tortilla chips. If the burrito doesn’t get you, we are pretty sure the chips will!
How does that sound? Could you put it away in one sitting? Just £25 to give it a go. Succeed and you’ll join a select group of challengers who have conquered. In fact, only 23 people have finished the whole thing. Fastest finisher (to date) is pro eater – Leah Shutkever – in 4 minutes 37 seconds. ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE! Give this a watch…
Ready to take on this ultimate food challenge? You can attempt it at all Mission Burrito locations (except Milton Park). No booking required but we advise you to avoid busy times in the restaurant and you can call ahead to give the team a heads ups!
