Restaurant Review: Bee Enchiladeria @ Bishop Arts

It is quite simple - BEE - Best Enchiladas Ever

Quite a clever name, allowing bee lexicon all over the establishment.  'Bee'verages, 'Bee'ware Salsa, 'Bee'f...actually, beef wasn't one of the bee-isms but they could have capitalized on that.

BEE is located and marked so brightly and clearly in the Bishop Arts district, you might have to put your sunglasses on to abate the radiance.  Not to worry, the hungover look is welcomed in this establishment.  Their giant yellow and black restaurant sign was like a red cape for the hungry bulls that we were that day. 

Chenille - taking a test.  (She got a B)


Walking in, you get the atmosphere of a Chipotle but this is also the Which Wich of Enchiladas.  But don't let these comparisons mislead you.  This establishment clearly has its own identity and unique concept.  Enjoy a margarita while you fill out the appropriate Bee paperwork - ask Steven to help you out.  Simply select your choice for tortilla, filling, cheese, and sauce.  If it's too much thinking for a hangover morning, then select one of the four "made our way" plates.  Quinoa & Tofu combos too!


I don't know how meat-eaters do it.  At a place like this, I wouldn't know where to BEGIN my selection!  Thankfully, I have a few vegetarian options - enough to feel like I have options, but not so many where I feel overwhelmed!  Surprisingly - beans (beens?) were not a filling option.  That was my only disappointment.  But you CAN get beans on the side and they are simply perfect.

Let your palate be sensitized by the flavors of queso fresco, blue corn tortillas, avocado verde sauce. Some enchiladas are cool, some hot, and all of them, damn good. Top it with the mixins of your choice and bee impressed.

The quality of the ingredients are undisputed. Great taste, only, I'll have to come back a few times to taste test everything. And the Beeware salsa is no joke. It's called Beeware for a reason.
