When someone tells you that you need to go to a place for the best burrito they’ve ever had, and they’re from New Mexico, you go there… Immediately! This happened to us when a friend told us about Hello, Deli. Oddly enough it’s in the shopping center off of paseo and Jefferson, hidden in the middle. I never would have looked twice if someone hadn’t told me about it! Thank goodness for word of mouth.
When you hear best burrito you assume smothered in chile… Shockingly this one is smothered in gravy. That’s because this is a chicken fried steak burrito. It’s GIANT and it comes out smothered I in the most delicious and decadent white gravy. You cut it open and you see a massive amount of delicately fried chicken fried steak, mixed with shredded cheese, crispy hash browns, AND spicy green chile. Each bite is perfectly balanced with each ingredient and I immediately fell in love. It is the perfect mix of American and New Mexican food! Their French fries are so crispy on the outside and moist on the inside; they are some of my favorites in the city. If you’re looking for a new lunch place with clever and decadent creations, then this is your place. It’s incredibly busy all the time, but especially during lunch so plan ahead! Happy eating!
