Last week I received an email from a friend detailing the Trenchermen's upcoming burger specials. The one that immediately made my mouth water was their 420 burger. I figured that if a classy/foodie place like TM was serving up stoner snacks, there had to be other places in the city that were doing the same.
Here's the spots serving up the funnest fare (that you can enjoy on any splurge day, not just when the munchies hit):
1. The 420 Burger from the Trenchermen comes with grilled cheese buns, bacon, ranch and a walking taco
2. The Carrot Cake Macaron (aka a hunk of carrot cake can be found in the center of this giant macaron) from Maple and Ash
3. Any empanada (except the vegetable) from Lito's. This is the Al Pastor but I'm partial to the chori-cheese (chorizo, cheese and potatoes), the champiñon chicken and choco-banana.
There is always room for some #LitosEmpanadas in my belly. The Al Pastor with seasoned pork, sweet pineapple, and ooey gooey cheese wrapped around a flaky pastry is my favorite. It's always fried to order and consistent. You really can't go wrong with any of their empanadas. P.s. Ask for their green chili sauce! It's spicy and goes perfectly with their yummy empanadas.
