burrito mission begins

winnie! I’m baaaack!! am I still allowed to post here??

In the past month or so, I’ve eaten more burritos than I have the entire time I’ve lived in San Francisco. Actually, in my entire life. I am completely fascinated and cannot get enough — burritos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And now I’m on a quest to acquire a thorough repertoire of taquerias.

We’ll start here with today’s dinner, and will follow up with an important day-after review: the cold burrito. Today, while A. was out at Amoeba buying last-minute Christmas gifts, I had him stop by any random taqueria to get us burritos for dinner. I requested a carnitas burrito (no cheese or sour cream), and A. got a vegetarian burrito. He ended up going to Zona Rosa (he says he’s been to the Berkeley location before).

Their salsa is quite good, although the salsa fresca actually incorporated into the burrito had some underripe tomatoes (well, it’s not tomato season anymore). I thought mine was too salty, which was a little weird. A. thought the rice was a bit undercooked. Also they were on the more expensive side — 2 burritos for $13.

The verdict: I wouldn’t go out of my way to get another one — we’ve already had better.

    Welcome back, Foo. Good to have you. Say hi to A for me. Am definitely planning on making it out to SF in 2008, so save some burritos for me.

    El Farolito is one of my mainstays. I haven’t yet written an entry about places that I have been to before officially launching this mission, but I plan to.
