District Taco, Arlington, VA

(See December 24, 2010 Review here).

Sometimes people assume I’m this little nerdy guy who sits around eating scallop consommé and sipping tea with my pinky extended (although usually people assume the opposite extreme).

On Tuesday night, I lived up to the opposite extreme: it was pig-out night at District Taco, complete with a bottle of 2004 Mugnier Nuits-Saint George 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale Burgundy.

Burrito Mojado ($8) with beans, rice, carne asada, salsa de chile, sour cream, cheese, lettuce and tomato is a massive burrito, but no more so than a full order of Nachos Borrachos ($7), a giant container full of chips, smothered – and I mean smothered – with beans, cheese, carne asada, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa de chile. Together, these things probably weighed about five pounds.

Did I finish them both? Yep. Did I eat in bed? Yep. Was I stuffed beyond normal human capacity? Like you wouldn’t believe. Sometimes you just have primal, sluggish cravings that need to be satisfied. Done.
