La Jolla UTC Area Restaurant Offers "Bunker Down" Family-Sized Burrito Package

March 20, 2020

Scott and Thai Slater, owners of the La Jolla-based Spitfire Tacos, are now offering the family-sized Bunker Down Burrito Package in an effort to help the local community with food and necessary supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Spitfire's Bunker Down Burrito Package includes one two-foot-long burrito, weighing five pounds and boasting a curated variety of the Slaters’ spit-roasted meats. It is actually five Spitfire burritos in one - The Pastrami, Philly Cheese, Al Pastor, Korean BBQ Pork Belly, and Jermell’s Jerk Chicken - made with meats all spit-roasted in house. The burrito package is enough to feed a family of four, or just you, we're not judging in this day and age. The burrito package also comes with giant sides of turmeric brown rice, black beans, and one roll of toilet paper, at a time when such supplies are scarce. The package costs $50.

"By nature, we are a creative and gregarious group of people here at Spitfire + Head Lettuce," said Spitfire owner and founder of Slater's 50/50 Scott Slater. "In times like these we're just trying to salvage some positivity and have fun while we work through this crisis together. Plus, if I can help reduce the amount of time people are waiting in line for necessities - like toilet paper - then that just adds to the experience..
