Italian Burrito Swaps Rice With Pasta Noodles


From the ramen burger to the cronut to the new concrete at Shake Shack, it’s clear we love our hybrid foods. And now, the next contender for our hearts has arrived: the Italian Burrito.

The burritos can be found at Burrisimo, a casual Italian restaurant in Brea, near Los Angeles. And while the process of making one of these monsters is similar to what you’d see at Chipotle, what goes inside is an entirely different pot of sauce.

Pasta (instead of rice) is wrapped up with grilled chicken, steak, meatballs, or salmon, and tossed with onions, peppers, and pasta sauce. It all gets contained by an organic flatbread, the Italian answer to a tortilla.

The menu also features two “favorite” burritos. One is made with chicken, angel hair, and divalo sauce, while the other has steak, sautéed veggies, mozzarella, and pomodoro.  Can someone please send me one molto rapidamente?
