Food Fight: Burrito Mercado vs. Manny's Tortas Mexican hot chocolate
It really never stops being exciting to get hot chocolate. The magical powers of nostalgia can stifle the gag reflex that might be otherwise induced by the combo of dehydrated marshmallows and tap water any old day. Besides, does anyone really have hot chocolate on a regular enough basis for it to feel normal? Mexican hot chocolate is an extra special breed of hot chocolate, usually made with milk and/or cream, cinnamon, vanilla and sometimes other ingredients like chilis and eggs. Here's how two Mexican hot chocolates stand up next to each other:
Burrito Mercado gets all fancy with its Mexican hot chocolate. It comes in one of those fancy coffee glasses that make your pinky automatically >zing< out. The beverage itself is subtle: not overly chocolatey, not overly sweet, with a pretty bit of froth on top, a brief cinnamon aftertaste and a decent sized gulp of wet chocolate goodness at the bottom -- maybe the best thing about hot chocolate. $2.00/glass.
