The Art of the Burrito

In the last year or so I have been overjoyed to see that, for some reason, burritos have come into fashion in Cork and at least three new burrito joints opened around the city centre. I am a big fan of Mexican food - or Tex Mex food at least - and burritos are a particular favourite of mine. I've said for years that if anyone ever opened a Taco Bell franchise here in Ireland, they would make a small fortune...

One of the burrito joints in the city is a place called Amigo Tex-Mex, located on Washington Street. I've eaten there a few times, and they do a very nice burrito, I must say. But the reason why I'm telling you all this is that behind the restaurant, on Tobin Street, the proprietors have painted some nice pseudo-Mexican art.

There's not much to say about it, but to post the pictures so you can see them. I took them in November 2014.
