Plan B's generally are not a good thing. Whether it's your backup plan for some kind of failure or the results of last night's sordid love affair, it's not exactly a connotation for the apex of life experiences.
Well, rather fittingly, Fort Lauderdale Beach now has a Plan B -- it's not some sort of clinic. Actually, it's called Plan Burrito
. The new burrito shop is situated next to B-Ocean on A1A.
The small shop specializes in build-your-own burritos, burrito bowls, and salad bowls. Starting at $5.99, a 12-inch burrito -- or burrito bowl or salad -- comes with choice of Plan B, beef; Plan C, chicken; Plan P, pork; Plan T, tofu; or Plan V, veggies. Two toppings essences are included: spanish rice, brown rice, black or red beans, shredded lettuce or spinach, or arugula. You get choice of four fresh fillings: tomato, cucumber, mixed cheese, onions, black olives, pineapple, jalapeños, pico de gallo, sour cream, corn, or cilantro. For the health-conscious, the menu has a breakdown of each ingredient's nutritional information.
The spot also offers breakfast burritos and bowls (starting at $4.79) and a few nonburrito options like tacos ($3.99), nachos ($4.99), soup of the house ($2.29), and chicken wings ($8.79).
Since it's across from the beach, the place obviously has to have alcohol. Beers start at $2.99. Sangria sells for $2.99. But keep an eye out for happy hour. Currently, Plan Burrito is offering domestic buckets for $12.99, imports for $14.99, and free draft beer with purchase of a burrito during happy hour, which runs from 5 to 7:30 p.m. daily. However, the menu does state that happy-hour offerings are subject to change.
Plan Burrito is open daily at 9:30 a.m. Weekdays it closes around 9 or 10 p.m. Weekends, it is open till 2 a.m. The permanent hours are still being determined.
