Sloppy’s Burritos is opening in Hillcrest this month. This quick-serve, healthy restaurant, features a simple, yet highly customizable menu of burritos, salads and bowls made with organic, locally sourced ingredients. The 1,100-square-foot restaurant takes an innovative “flash-grilling” approach and has a strong emphasis on sustainability and simplicity. Sloppy’s Burritos will open Saturday, March 2, 2013 and is centrally located in Hillcrest at 3884 Fourth Avenue and features modern Southern California décor with indoor and patio seating for 32.
Guests can customize their meal with a broad array of healthy choices including five types of low-fat tortillas (whole wheat, spinach, garlic green onion, jalapeno cilantro or flour), organic white or brown rice, organic black or pinto beans, organic lettuce, organic guacamole, non-rBST sour cream and Monterey Jack cheeses, and a light cilantro vinaigrette dressing. Homemade salsas include mild Pico de Gallo, roasted tomato, roast tomatillo or spicy Chipotle, and feature organic tomatoes. Guests can also choose non-GMO and organic blue corn chips with their choice of salsa or homemade guacamole or in a “party bowl” to go.
Sloppy’s Burritos is introducing a new approach to burrito artistry with its signature “flash-grilling” process. Proteins are “flash-grilled” at 450 degrees in 90 seconds or less upon ordering, a technique adapted from Japanese cooking methods. This delivers the freshest and most savory burritos possible, eliminating the bland taste so common in traditional burritos. In another break from the norm, Sloppy’s Burritos steams its tortillas when guests order a burrito, giving the wrap pliability and activating the flavor of the tortilla.
Sloppy’s Burritos offers a fun, if not eclectic, series of off-menu items including the Threesome, an entrée featuring 3 choices of protein, grilled together; Sloppy’s Style, an entree in which the rice and protein are cooked together on the griddle; and Chicken Little, a breakfast burrito offered on weekends featuring organic, locally sourced eggs.
Sloppy’s Burritos serves burritos in recyclable gold foil, and all salads and bowls are served in plant-based compostable bowls.
Sloppy’s Burritos will open Saturday, March 2nd, and is located at 3884 Fourth Avenue in Hillcrest. The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. daily. For more information, visit www.sloppysburritos.com or find Sloppy’s Burritos on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/SloppysBurritos.
