after a few days in san francisco, you’ll begin to notice a strange proliferation of fat silvery cylinders sprouting from the hands and faces of the local population. is it an alien invasion? a new kind of cellphone? no. you’ve discovered the secret passion of san francisco, the vital fuel source of artists, students, plumbers and lawyers alike… the san francisco mission burrito.
though digestively challenging, the mission burrito is in many ways the perfect food, and san franciscans are as passionate about their favorite taquerias as they are about their politics. this is not a subject to be taken lightly…and now i’ve discovered that they’re just as serious about burritos in berlin!
