Burrito numero siete! Primo Patio Cafe: jerk chicken, black beans, rice, plantains, and peppers wrapped in a flour tortilla.
After fighting through the SOMA lunch crowd and failing to get a kimchi burrito as well as a burrito recommended to me by the great Rod Begbie (burrito connoisseur), I finally chanced upon a delicious smelling and deceptively un-busy establishment. It was a Caribbean place that actually had burritos on their menu… how can you go wrong? So I ordered my burrito and waited for what seemed like ages before my burrito actually materialized through the window.
This thing was huge. The biggest burrito I’ve ever seen. I brought it into Philz and ate it like a pig next to my health-conscious salad-consuming co-worker. It’s hard to consume ONLY burritos when all your co-workers look like models. One bite, two bites… It’s like when you unwrap a package and discover that it’s not only HUGE… it’s also perfectly delicious. This IS the perfect burrito. I’m saving the bottom half of it for dinner or breakfast… or maybe just so I can shove it in Christopher’s face.
In other news, Epicenter has implemented a one-hour limit on wifi usage, which I am very unhappy about. I guess the kimchi burrito is now the only reason why I would ever go to SOMA now, and I don’t even like kimchi. Another thing I’ve realized…. I would hate working in SOMA because the lines at all the good eateries are so incredibly long. The Mission is actually quite pleasant during the day. How does anyone ever get any work done if they are spending 30 minutes or more waiting in line for a friggin’ burrito?
Upper: so yummy, Downer: are there any?, Rating: 5/5
