In the distance you can see a laker. In real life your mind’s eye edits out the power lines and poles. A person really notices them in a photo. We didn’t even notice the two young men (probably college students as this restaurant is in East Hillside) eating their lunches on the hood of the car until we notice the laker and took a photo.Â We were sitting on the balcony of Burrito Union Here is a story I wroteÂ a few years ago about “the Burrito”: Duluth restaurant capitalizes on socialist theme. (Read the story to see how I chose the title of this post.)
We chose to sit outside because we love the food, but the aucostics in the building a bad. We wanted to talk to each other and actually hear each other. It’s very loud. It was a little chilly outside on the baclony in back overlooking the parking lot as well as a peek a boo view of the lake.
The photo below is a closeup ofÂ the laker gracefully gliding by as we eat our meals of the “Happy Worker”Â (veggie blend, red rice, black beans, ding sauce, red onions, dice tomatoes, cheese bland and pico de galloÂ salsa.)Â and the “Vegan Socialist.” ( Veggie blend, red rice, black beans, jalapenos, cilantro, red onions, cilantro lime vinaigrette, guacamole.) Mine, the “Vegan Socialist” was a burrito, my companion’s was a salad taco bowl. When my husband eats at the “B.U.” he usually gets the Fat Capitalist ( Achiote pork, red rice, black beans, cheese blend, red onion, seasoned sour cream and roasted tomato salsa.
Below is my favorite item on the menu: the Happy Worker; today I ventured out and explored something new: the Vegan Socialist. It was a very good burrito, but I ate so fast that I forgot to get a photo of it.Â Next time I go with my hubby I will take a photo of his Fat Capitalist pork burrito.
In Duluth any day you can eat good food outside and see a lake glide by is a good day!
