The Burrito Whisperer

We’ve been hipped to a new blog making the rounds featuring an exhaustive collection of burritos from around Mission (and elsewhere), each standing vertically with the firm posture befitting its pedigree as a MISSION BURRITO.

From the looks of it, this guy has eaten a lot of burritos.  Now, I’m no slouch myself (as Vic can attest having witnessed me eating three super burritos in a single day), but the thought of taking this dude on in a burritopacolypse death match makes me just a little queasy.

All hail the Burrito Whisperer (although he didn’t seem to get the memo about how the dudes at Jarritos are a bunch of jerks).

    The most impressive thing about this is that he seems to make it home with the burritos when he gets them to go. By the time I get home I’ll I’ve got is a soggy butt.

    It’d be better if he went to more than 5 places.

  3. Neo Displacer says:

    here is a guy who rates each place. He’s reviewed 768 burritos

    I guess if you like the pics of the half-eaten donkeys…but the whisperer guy doesn’t seem to know much about burritos given the number he shows on the site. Lot of pics, little knowledge.

    Part of the beauty of Mission burritos is different places make different things well, so sometimes you have to really check out a place thoroughly to know what they do great. If you just walk into one randomly, order your “usual” like at the previous 10 places, and rate on that first impression, you usually won’t get very far at all towards solving the mystery of what’s great on that particular menu.

    There are places that have on the same menu items that are near-inedible next to ones that are near-perfection, and knowing which is which is gold.
