12 May Mad Mex Fresh Mexican Grill
Mad Mex Fresh Mexican Grill is a fast and casual Mexican eatery serving up baja Mexican food with a Californian influence.
Inspired by Baja which is a small peninsula of California located in Mexico, they use authentic Mexican products and recipes and pride themselves in serving the best flavours rolled into a burrito.
Their aim is not only making the best baja style burritos in the world but to share the vibe and sounds of Mexico.
Corn chips with various dips to psyche us up for the challenge.
Our burritos being made to order. Everything is prepared fresh in store daily.
Every May Mad Mex celebrates Cinco de Mayo, a festival that honours a historic victory for the underdog Mexican army against the French. What better way to celebrate than trying to conquer the Mad Mex big burrito challenge with a giant 1kg burrito.
The burrito was almost the size of my head so of course I failed but it tasted delicious nonetheless and was all in good fun.
Those who complete the challenge receive and authentic wrestling mask, custom made for Mad Mex. They also enter the Big Burrito hall of fame on social media with the hashtag #bigburritofame while losers use the hashtag #bigburritofail.
You know which hashtag I had to use #bigburritofail #burritoasbigasmyhead.
