No way, a new nationwide best burrito list?! #sarcasm. Yup, the folks over at The Daily Meal recently published The 50 Best Burritos in America 2018 Gallery and, surprise, San Diego burritos are well represented.
What’s the criteria, who’s picking the burritos? Who cares! This isn’t about credibility, this is about bomb-ass burrito click-bait with nods handed out to seven epic San Diego establishments including Lucha Libre, Lolita’s, Ortiz’s and Nico’s.
But, how do we know the list is sketchy? Because San Francisco took the top spot with a carnitas burrito at La Taquería. Sorry, San Fran, but, we all know San Diego, a BORDER town, throws down the best Mexican food in the state of California (p.s. the country.) Also, noticeably missing, Colima’s in North Park.
Haha, that being said, here’s how San Diego ranked overall. :
#47: Carne asada burrito at Taco Surf (4657 Mission Blvd.)
#34: Carne asada burrito at La Perla Cocina Mexicana (745 Emerald St.)
#27: Surf & Turf burrito at Lucha Libre Taco Shop (1810 W Washington St.)
#24: Tsunami burrito at Lolita’s (413 Telegraph Canyon Rd.)
#21: Lobster burrito at El Zarape (4642 Park Blvd.)
#8: California burrito at Ortiz’s Taco Shop (3704 Voltaire St.)
#5: Carne asada burrito at Nico’s Mexican Food (4918 Newport Ave.)
Now, would California change the state flag to a California Burrito already?
