Alicia and I have to admit that we were always kind of jealous of our southern Connecticut friends with all those fancy food trucks popping up in their cities and towns.
Well, now they can all eat their hearts out. We have a new food truck in town: The Green Grunion.
The Green Grunion is bringing San Diego style burritos to the corner of North Street and Padanaram Ave in Danbury. Owner Paul Mannion is originally from Bethel, then was out in San Diego where he learned the art of the burrito. Now he's back and sharing his skills.

The menu includes: The Cali featuring carne asada, Chorizo, Carnitas, Chicken, Veggie and Bean. The prices range anywhere from $6.50 to $7.50. It's pretty reasonable considering the high quality ingredients in these burritos. Each burrito comes with your choice of mild, medium or hot sauce.
We ordered one carnitas and one chorizo both with a side of the hot sauce. The chorizo was that amazing slightly greasy pork goodness you love but with a hint of sweetness in there too. Add the hot sauce and it was a delicious flavor mix.
We will be back ... soon!

at 109 North Steet in Danbury.
Paul said he's building up a following and one day he may just settle down in a brick and mortar spot in downtown. For now however he's on the move. We suggest you catch him.
