I am laughing so hard.. gotta share this fun website I just stumbled across. Mo'men Burritos - yea, a local restaurant has a whole website devoted to this new menu item. It looks like they've put a lot of effort into this, and even have four commercials that you can watch from the website - I hope no-one finds them culturally insensitive/stereotyping, I think they are creative - or at least, they're poking equal fun at Egyptians and Mexicans. I may be missing some of the joke - which happens with foreign language, esp. in dialect, but the basic theme appears to be the Egyptian restaurant is trying to pass off their burritos as authentic, and the Mexicans are not happy about it. What I especially like - besides the creative silliness - is the fact that at least one Egyptian restaurant is trying to promote Mexican/Tex-Mex food.... YAY!!!! Makes me want to Otlob some Mo'men burritos...oh oh oh oh! .... just to show my appreciation! I miss Mexican/Tex-Mex food so much when we're overseas. Even the simple quesadilla - fried tortilla with cheese in it. Or beans in a tortilla. This is basic comfort food, and while I can make my own, it's not the same... sometimes, when you want comfort food, you want someone else to make it for you. Thank Mo'men.
