Sunny Side Swine: Berryhill Baja Grill's Taco of the Month

Berryhill Baja Grill's inaugural taco of the month featured a deep fried tamale.
Needless, to say a tough act to follow. The July taco, "Sunny Side Swine" is no fading violet, however, and will appeal especially to fans of brinner (and clever alliteration). 

A supple, warm flour tortilla serves as the bed for mound of slightly sweet pulled pork laced with barbeque sauce and mixed with red cabbage, cilantro, pickled red onion, and cotija.  How do you top such a terrific collaboration of sugar and spice, crunchy and soft textures? With a sunny-side fried egg, of course. 

Because of the precarious state of the egg yolk, this taco is best consumed on the premises. HOWEVER, if you do take one home, be prepared for a heartbreaking work of staggering genius in terms of takeout packaging. Berryhill Baja Grill manages to swaddle the delicate taco as one would a newborn baby, securing all the components without danger of crushing them. I actually cooed when I opened the foil. Then, I ate my beautiful taco baby.

You can enjoy the Sunny Side Swine Taco at any Berryhill location through July 31st, but for an extra fun experience, hit up the West University location from 8-10pm on Thursday, July 16th. Berryhill will be featured on "Carnival Eats" on Cooking Channel with Noah Cappe there will be a watch party with $4 margaritas, $1 spinach & corn tamales (featured on the show), and $2.50 Sunny Side Swine Tacos.
