Taqueria El Farolito, San Francisco
The first time I had one of these foil-wrapped burritos in the city, I couldn't understand why everyone up here loved them so much. I mean, the thing was just loaded up with so much rice and beans that it was just stuffing my belly without much taste. Tonight I took the BART down to the 24th Street Station to this place (2779 Mission Street, 824-7877) in the hopes that maybe a proper San Francisco burrito from the Mission District would be different.
Unfortunately, this thing was...well, loaded with tons of beans and rice. The carnitas were not crispy either, although at least those grilled jalapeños kept things fun. Next time I'll see if I can get them to tweak things a bit like they do at La Costeña (they did ask if I wanted "everything" in my burrito after all). There is also another shop just down the street in the other direction called La Taqueria that apparently doesn't use rice; maybe that will be more to my liking.
Digested at 8:30 PM
