The Best Burrito in San Francisco

Wow, lots of breaking burrito news lately!  Let’s review, shall we?

First up, the 2010 Mission Burrito Book named its controversial choice for #1 burrito in San Francisco.  I won’t ruin the suspense by spoiling the winning taqueria here, but I will say that it’s not Lady Gaga fave El Farolito, Papalote, Cancun, or El Metate.  Who could it be then?  Check it out for yourself!

Speaking of Papalote, Aggressive Panhandler is reporting that the Bobby Flay-slaying taqueria will now be selling their more-addictive-than-crack secret salsa in jars for people around the world to purchase online.  No longer will you have to remember to order (and pay for!) an extra container when you get your burritos to go!  How much would you pay for this 60-gallon vat of Papalote salsa?

    this must be some kind of joke

  2. Absurd. La Altena isn’t bad, but it’s not top-tier.

    Ive been to that place a few times while living two blocks away. It’s not good, I only went there because I knew Faralito would be packed.

    The al pastor here is pretty good but I would never get it in burrito form since it’s too overpowering. It rues in the tacos though.

    There goes my enjoyment of the refreshing lack of burrito in-fighting that I enjoyed yesterday.

    It’s subjective, folks. Get over it.

    As any Californian knows, there really isn’t that much great Mexican food anywhere north of Los Angeles.

  8. Sheabones says:

    Uh, right…most of you folks shouldn’t even try La Altena, especially that abuelita styled al pastor! Stick to Papalote and Gracias Madre. Those of us who grew up on homemade Mexican food promise to stay out of your way ;)

    Wait, there’s something else to eat besides El Gran Taco Loco’s pollo asado? And something else to read on the subject besides WEIRD.

    here is the top-secret recipe for Papalote’s salsa figured out by some smarties who can reverse engineer food!

    redwood city has some bad-ass taquerias
    chavez meat market
    el gruellense

  12. The next time i’m in the area campaigning, I’ll stop by and have a ex-big Burrito.
