MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Tender lamb that falls right off the bone -- and a burrito bigger than your head!

They are the signature dishes of two restaurants that tied for this week's High Score.

La Perla Tapatia, 2050 W. Poplar Ave. in Collierville, and Petra Cafe, 5101 Sanderlin Ave. in East Memphis' Sanderlin Centre, earned 99 on their latest health inspections.

La Perla Tapatia is the home of the Burrito De Asada, a giant steak burrito stuffed with rice, beans, cheese, hot sauce and Mexican table cream instead of sour cream. The Scorecard honored it as one of the top 5 exclusive Mexican dishes in the Mid-South.

Petra Cafe's Sanderlin location has only been opened for two months. But it's already winning customers over with its cleanliness, its Lamb Burger and Lamb Shank, Greek desserts and Mediterranean sandwiches/salads.

"I love the Albacore Tuna Salad," said corporate neighbor and regular customer Mona Sappenfield. "Really natural and green. It's wonderful!"
