Weatherman Versus Food - El Azteca - Benji Burrito Challenge
By ANDREW LOGSDON | firstname.lastname@example.org
It's Friday night and WFFT weekend meteorologist Andrew Logsdon is back with another episode of Weatherman Versus Food.
This week, he's at a Fort Wayne favorite for Mexican food- El Azteca- taking on their Benji Burrito Challenge.
People in Fort Wayne love El Azteca- located on State Boulevard.
In fact, it was voted 'Best Mexican Restaurant' for 2013 by Fort Wayne Newspapers.
So I had to go and check out their Benji Burrito Challenge.
"Just to feature some of the good food we have. You're going to be eating a soup to start off, which is our black bean soup... Then you're going to move to a Benji Burrito, which is our giant wet burrito... And then for dessert, we're going to finish off with a chocolate flan,” says store manager Christina Ray-Durnell.
The Benji Burrito is stuffed full inside- and out.
And paired with the soup-
And chocolate flan-
Benji is out to get me.
Let's see if I can eat it all.”
There's no time limit.
I start with the soup.
“Here we go, let's do it.”
And before you can even say black bean soup...
“Within seconds, one down. Now we come to Benji.”
It's over a foot long.
I make Benji pay for thinking he could stop me.
“Dang! Maybe I should have put a time limit. That's pretty good!”
“Top it all off, chocolate flan.”
“Mmmmmm, oh my!”
Forget the challenge-
I wish this would never end.
“One final bite - go!”
But it must-
And it goes down.
