Want a burrito from the Panda Express?  No Problem… but only in Cali

Want a burrito from the Panda Express? No Problem… but only in Cali

I think it’s safe to call Panda Express “inauthentic” Chinese food. And now, we can call it inauthentic MEXICAN food too.

Because there are four Panda Express locations in southern California that are now serving ORANGE CHICKEN BURRITOS. The burrito shell is a scallion pancake, and you fill the burrito with rice or chow mein, orange chicken, and toppings.

There’s no word on whether they plan on taking this nationwide.

A Woman Makes Herself a Wedding Dress Out of Taco Bell Wrappers

In case you haven’t heard, a new Taco Bell in Las Vegas has a WEDDING CHAPEL inside, and they’re running a contest where some couple will win a free dream wedding there. At Taco Bell. Who could POSSIBLY have that dream, right?

Um . . . this woman. A woman named Diane Nguyen wanted her entry in the contest to stand out, so she got a bunch of unused taco and burrito wrappers from a Taco Bell . . . and made herself a WEDDING DRESS out of them.

She says she wanted to get married at Taco Bell because, quote, “It has been there through the years, from the after school runs, to late meals after work or a night of partying.”

If You Can Finish a 30-Pound Burrito at This Restaurant, They’ll Make You an Owner

If You Can Finish a 30-Pound Burrito at This Restaurant, They’ll Make You an Owner

There are hundreds of restaurants around the country with extreme eating challenges. Usually you have to finish, like, a five-pound hamburger to get a t-shirt or something. Forget about that. THIS is a real prize.

A Mexican restaurant in Brooklyn, New York called Don Chingon has a new eating challenge that’s probably the hardest in the world . . . but it definitely has the most lucrative prize.

If you can finish a 30-POUND BURRITO in one hour, they’ll make you an OWNER.

The burrito uses a tortilla with a diameter of about three-and-a-half feet. It’s stuffed with chicken, steak, carnitas, chorizo, cheese, rice, beans, and salsa. Oh, and you also have to drink a margarita that’s made with a ghost pepper.

You can’t take a bathroom break or throw up, and it costs $150 just to try. But if you succeed, you become a 10% owner of the restaurant . . . which could be worth some serious cash over time.

The team at Don Chingon says they felt like ownership was the only fair prize. Quote, “If you’re going to gain 25 to 30 pounds in a single sitting, you deserve real compensation.

“Some restaurants put your name on the wall . . . we’ll GIVE you the wall.”
