May marks a great time of the year to celebrate. “Celebrate what?” you might ask. You can have any reason to celebrate, such as life, friends, love, and more. Many holidays take place around May, such as May Day, Star Wars Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, and Memorial Day. May also means that the weather should greatly improve; after all, the quote “April showers bring May flowers” exists for a reason! No matter what reason you have, take some time this month to enjoy life and what it brings. Many cultures have reason to celebrate in May, especially on Cinco de Mayo when many partake in the celebration with Mexican culture. People often expect delicious Mexican food & drinks during a Cinco de Mayo celebration, such as carne asada, tacos, and tequila. With today’s cultures mixing and integrating, we now see Cinco de Mayo celebrations with other types of foods, including American food. Sometimes, those foods get combined together and result in something amazing, such as what Grill ‘Em All has accomplished.

No strangers to the cuisine of different cultures, Grill ‘Em All loves to mix things up in their kitchen up in Alhambra. Best known as the winner of the first season of Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race, Grill ‘Em All continues to carve out a name for themselves as they live the dream of finally moving from the truck to the countertop. The increased kitchen space allows them to churn out greater volumes of orders, as well as have space to experiment and create new menu items, either permanent or temporary items. Grill ‘Em All has come out with a slew of temporary menu items ever since they opened, most of which have appeared for a month as part of their Burger Of The Month series. For this month’s Burger Of The Month, May 2016 gives us the The Brujería A.K.A. El Hijo Del Santo. “Brujería” means witchcraft, while “El Hijo del Santo” translates to The Son of the Saint while also referring to the wrestler. This Mexican inspired burger comes to us with cream cheese, jalapeños, chorizo chilaquiles, avocado salsa, cotija cheese, and a fried egg, all on a half-pound beef patty. Despite the Mexican influence, this eats very much like a breakfast burger. I took off the top bun, and the fried egg actually held the rest of the burger quite well. Only the jalapeños stood out with its spice level. Everything else had great body and felt really filling & hearty.

Get a taste of Mexican flavor all this month at Grill ‘Em All in Alhambra to take on The Brujería A.K.A. El Hijo Del Santo. You can pound this fiesta of flavors for just $13. Enjoy a cold beer while dining here, since Grill ‘Em All has expanded their craft beer lineup to include a greater variety of beers. Also consider ordering the Bread Pudding Of The Month, something that Grill ‘Em All has recently introduced.
