Texans have a pretty big obsession with giant food and we don’t blame them. Staying true to the “everything is bigger in Texas” motto, the Cris and John restaurant in Dallas serves massive 10-pound Phorritos! The massive dish requires you to find a way to maneuver the entire delicious Asian burrito into your mouth - and good luck not spilling out any of the heavenly ingredients on the inside!
The Phorrito is steak, basil, cilantro, bean sprouts, jalapenos, red onion, rice noodles tossed in house sauce, hoison and sriracha sauce wrapped in a flour tortilla and pan-fried. Talk about a good meal! The regular sized phorittos are pretty big on their own but the massive one might keep you full for a week.
There are no other current challenges for finishing one of these enormous treats except the one you make yourself. The Vietnamese street food joint does offer smaller versions of their famous food in case you need a practice round before going into the boss level. They also offer a ramen version of the burrito but instead of their classic ingredients, they fill it with spicy ramen noodles.
The resultant has tons of other yummy treats including Bang Bang Wings, Dry Noodles, and Korean Fires. They also have a variety of teas and even horchata. The only day of the week the joint is closed is on Saturday; other than that, they are open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Cris and John is located at 5555 Preston Oak Rd in Dallas, Texas. To look at their full menu and more information, you can visit their website here.
