Aug 11: Sharkey’s Fiesta Burrito; Souse Vidé Brisket and Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Parsley

Lunch

We wondered whether Sharkey’s Fiesta Burrito was a true “gringo” burrito like those we first had in Woodland Hills where our office was right next to, what turned out to be, one of the best Mexican food outlets we’ve found. Certainly none better since we moved office to Burbank.

Sharkey’s Steak Fiesta Burrito is pretty close and a very generous serve. We enjoyed it for $15.58 per serve with tax and tip, which is a lot for a burrito.

Dinner

After 24 hours in the Souse Vidé bath our Brisket was ready to be seared in a pan, and carved. With it we served Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Parsley and will get two meals – four serves – out of both.

  • The brisket was $18.48 or $4.62 per serve
  • The Gnocchi was $1.69 or 43c per serve
  • Sliced Crimini Mushrooms were $2.49 or 63c per serve
  • Add 35c for Parsley and seasoning.

The Brisket was, once again, transformed into something more like Prime Rib: tender and full of beefy flavor. The Gnocchi dish made a great side for an excellent Sunday night “roast” for $6.03 per serve.
