Ty Segall’s favorite taco, and why tacos are better than burritos

The A.V. Club today devotes a LOT of words to formerly local hero Ty Segall’s love of tacos:

The A.V. Club: Why do you love tacos?

Ty Segall: Growing up in Southern California and moving to Northern California, tacos are a part of the culture. Also, I don’t know why, but it’s always been more of an excuse for me to spend time with people eating a taco, especially in San Francisco. There was this one place, El Castillito, that we’d always go, and me and my buddy John [Dwyer] from Thee Oh Sees would always meet there twice a week and get a taco. It’s a pretty rad excuse to just sit and eat and talk. I don’t really have any other foods or places in my life that are excuses to hang out with people.

Read on to hear Ty name his favorite taqueria in all the land (which is in SF) and to hear why tacos are better than burritos (something about warmth and love).

(Thanks, Linds!)

    Heck yeah! Their happy hour burritos basically kept me alive during unemployment.

  2. hater says:

    Before that was El Castillito it was a taqueria called El Quakeo and it is not nor ever was considered part of The Mission

  3. Nickel says:

    El Castillito is delicious. Actually it’s terrible. Don’t go there, you’ll hate it.

    Yes. Everyone. El Castillito on Church is the worst place ever. Never visit there. Never ever ever. And whatever you do, never order the al pastor tacos. They are not at all the greatest foodstuff available to humanity. Not even in the least.

    The one on Mission though? Totally check that place out. Everyone. All the time. It’s the greatest.

    You people are delusional. El Castillito is average at best.

  8. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I
    guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am
    an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole
    thing. Do you have any tips for rookie blog
    writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  9. This is a very good tip especially to those new
    to the blogosphere. Short but very accurate info…
    Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read article!
