Best Burrito San Francisco 2012 - La Corneta
Oh, the gastronomic abuse that has been perpetrated in under the guise of a super burrito. Too often, "super" means gloopy, starchy, overwhelmed by bland rice. The super burritos served at La Corneta's Glen Park location incorporate fistfuls of cheese and fresh lettuce in their super burrito, but the flavor comes out bold and balanced. Grill smoke still hugs the steak and chicken. The rice is cooked with enough aromatics to taste vivid. The lettuce adds a fragile crunch, and the cheese and crema contribute a bright tang. Size isn't what makes the burrito super, flavor is.
