In an episode of the entertainment TV show Extra, Reynolds and Miller took over the Señor Sisig food truck in San Francisco, USA, which serves a fusion of the popular Filipino happy hour snack (or pulutan in Filipino) and Mexican taqueria dishes. One of the food truck’s specialties is their take on the chimichanga, a deep-fried burrito.
Reynolds even insisted at one point to do away with the limit of 1 free chimichanga per guest, and do his job Oprah-style:
@vancityreynolds is a rule-breaker... He says chimichangas for everyone! @deadpoolmovie #ExtraTV A video posted by @extratv on Feb 8, 2016 at 2:00pm PST
The Señor Sisig food truck is owned by Filipino-American entrepreneurs Evan Kidera and Gil Payumo. Their venture was inspired by an heirloom recipe of Payumo’s father from Pampanga. – Rappler.com
