Manita Burrito, Fairmount’s newest burrito joint, Intimate Dinner Party

Manita Burrito, Fairmount’s newest burrito joint, had their VIP grand
opening preview on November 12, 2014 at Mugshots Coffeehouse, where
they’ll be taking over the kitchen every
Thursday-Saturday for dinner.

 At the intimate party, the guests mingled
around bowls of housemade chips and guacamole. Guests enjoyed a variety
of bite-sized burritos, including chorizo, chicken, beef, carnitas, and
more.

Chef Michael O’Halloran (r) (also of Bistro
7 on N3RD St.) and managing partner Noam Kugelmass (L) circulated through
the crowd, introducing themselves to the new Fairmount patrons. The once
“pop-up” shop is nicknamed the “Casa del Freekeh Burrito” after the
signature menu item – a burrito filled with an
ancient super grain called freekeh. Manita Burrito started dishing out
their locally-sourced and organic cuisine earlier this month and is now
open for business every weekend for dinner.
