One of our best friends in the world is German. Her name is Anna. She lived here for a couple years while going to school, but now she’s back in Germany, and she moves to Berlin in the fall. She misses us somewhat I’m sure, but even more than that she misses a good Mission burrito. The other day in the Introduce Yourself section, reader Johnny0 delivered some good news:
Last month I took a German buddy of mine to El Farolito for a burrito. At first he was scared, but now he won’t shut up about it.
Just minutes ago he sent me pictures of a taqueria in Berlin he found — Dolores Burritos. I had to share — check out the map on the wall!
Here it is (click to make large):
Photo page here, includes the exclamation “They carry Anchor Steam and Negra Modelo!” and a link to an article about the establishment’s founders:
Having spent considerable time in California, the two compared notes and decided the city had a burrito gap just crying out to be filled by a fat tortilla stuffed with adobo beef, pinto beans and, yes, guacamole.
It also has nice things to say about the Mission, as well as some insights into how the place is being received by locals. Link.
Finally, I told Anna the news, and here’s what she had to say:
OMG!!!!! oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!!!! how excietd am i???? sooooo excited!!
