Here’s the best part, you can book for travel soon. JetBlue will let you book for November 2, 2022 through February 15, 2023 with the exclusion of November 18 through November 28 and December 16 through January 1, 2023. As for your Southwest trip, the travel window includes dates between November 29, 2022 and March 8, 2023 with just December 16 through January 9 blacked out.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
