I love checking out new restaurants and when it serves delicious fusion burritos and tacos, you know I’ll be there. A good friend from college and I stopped by Belly in Oakland for dinner after work and we were in for a nice surprise when the hip and brightly-lit restaurant greeted us. It was no doubt we had to try their Belly burrito, which includes: House Marinated Steak, Rice, Korean Slaw and Kimchi Aioli (YUM!).
And what is a good meal if you can’t share the delight, right? We decided to order both Belly and Shrimp + Avocado burritos to trade the half away. We were also offered three different house sauces ranging from mild, medium and hot. The mild sauce resembled a herb and lemon aioli (although I can’t be sure), the medium sauce had a distinct tomato flavor which was great with the Shrimp + Avocado burrito and the spicy one definitely added brought some heat to the table. I think that having a variety of their own sauce makes this place a little more special because the flavor you experience here is unique!
I can’t wait to go back here to try some of their other creations and I’ll be back with more photos to share :) Meanwhile, you can check out their menu online!
