Burrito Girl keeps its menu short and sweet, ensuring that its kitchen crew can focus on crafting each dish fresh to order. Burritos fold around onions, cilantro, beans, rice, and meats that have never been frozen or even visited an igloo. A layer of cheese and pork or veggies fills each pupusa before they're fried to a golden brown.
Bob Cook isn’t big on labels. Take the word breakfast, for example. To him, a chili dog complements a sunrise just as well as an egg sandwich. That’s why he serves Bob’s Deli & Donuts’ entire menu of homemade pastries and deli fare from 5 a.m. until closing time.
As alarm clocks buzz around town, cyclists begin circling the shop, which boasts a parking station fit for bicycles and Bob’s own unicycle. Inside, friendly staffers slice freshly roasted turkey and ham by hand, tailoring the thickness to each customer’s liking, as patrons inhale the scent of frying bacon or deliberate over several styles of donuts. The deli also whips up vegan italian sausages bolder than coffee filtered through a megaphone.
