If you've ever indulged a late-night craving with Taco Bell's famous Crunchwrap, you'll want to head to Guerrilla Street Food this week.
Starting today, you can get an elevated version of the fast-food staple at the Filipino-inspired restaurant, thanks to a new partnership with Taco Circus. This is the latest collaboration in Guerrilla Street Food's Super Friends series, which kicked off in late October with week-long specials from Vincent Van Doughnut and The Tamale Man.
The series is a way for Guerrilla Street Food co-owners Brian Hardesty and Joel Crespo to showcase Filipino flavors through several different types of cuisines. As for how they picked the restaurants to partner with, Hardesty says the answer is simple: They're some of his favorite places to eat.
Developed with Taco Circus owner Christian Ethridge, the Filipino Crunchwrap is a massive flour tortilla stuffed with crispy chorizo-seasoned pork belly, refried mung beans, housemade Thai chile-Jack cheese, Calamansi sour cream, cilantro, bean sprouts and crispy chicarrones. The wrap is then seared on the grill and topped with Taco Circus’ housemade fire sauce. It's available today through Sat., Nov. 18 at Guerrilla Street Food's South Grand location.
The series wraps up next week with a pork asado-stuffed kolache made in collaboration with St. Louis Kolache. The Filipino-inspired kolache will be available Nov. 20 through 30 (minus Thanksgiving Day). A portion of proceeds from each Super Friends dish will be donated to the International Institute of St. Louis.
Guerrilla Street Food is gearing up for a busy winter: The restaurant just announced a Delmar Loop location, and will soon open the doors to a spot in The Grove.
