Sam and I stopped in at Puebla Mexican Food & Coffee Shop to fill our stomachs before karaoke at Mike & Annali’s b-day. I got the Cactus Burrito and he got the Shrimp Tacos. Both going for $7.50. Does that sound like a lot for tacos at such a place? I saw a used cup of green hot sauce on the counter that looked good and so I asked for some hot sauce when my burrito came out. The lady said it already has hot sauce in it. That was weird exchange. Well I can’t say it was really spicy like I wanted, but I could taste some spice. If there’s anything I learned that night it’s to learn BBD’s Poison for next karaoke and to just grab that used hot sauce next time. But it could have been p-p-poison… shit.
