For those of you who attend or have attended Lehigh, than you probably know of the mexican restaurant right off campus, Tulum. I think one of the reasons this restaurant is so popular among Lehigh’s student body is because it’s quick in terms of service and easy to get to. It’s right near campus square, so one doesn’t need to venture too far. With this in mind I think it’s also clear that people frequently stop by Tulum because of their food. The food is authentic and while there’s classic items on the menu, like a cheese-quesadilla, they also have more creative dining options like a burrito filled with chicken and wing sauce. Which brings me to my next topic, the “wingaritto.”
If you aren’t familiar with the term wingaritto, it’s basically what it sounds like- a burrito with chicken wings and hot sauce. This is one of Tulum’s most popular and requested item, so what I’ve been told from my student sources. So, what else does this burrito include? Well, what does every classic burrito have inside? Rice, beans, lettuce, tomato, etc. When you add fresh and shredded chicken to this burrito and smother it with hot wing sauce, then you’ve got yourself a wingaritto. Although I probably don’t recommend trying it if you’re not a fan of spicy food, for the rest of you who enjoy a little heat, this is the item for you.
So, in the end, if you’re visiting the area or go to Lehigh and have never been to Tulum, get up and go… and try that wingaritto.
