But the hell on earth that was the January hiatus/siesta of Burritoeater has finally ended.
As of Friday, our favorite burrito review site is back in action, with the publication of the 2007 Slabbies, as well as a visit to the Shotwell Tonayense truck. The Slabbies, as you surely know, constitute the annual Burritoeater best-ofs. We’ll republish the top five here, because we know you can’t wait even one click for the results. You’d better head over to Burritoeater for complete results as well as that hilarious and insightful Tonayense visit.
Top five burritos of 2007:
1 - Dos Piñas Taq., November 1, 9.17 mustaches
This Potrero Hill stalwart, long known for its spectacular tortilla soup and mediocre, yet costly burritowork, stunned our panel with Burritoeater’s highest-rated slab in nearly four years. And to think we ordered a bowl of spectacular tortilla soup as backup for the anticipated mediocre burrito.
2 - Gordo Taq. (Inner Sunset), December 5, 9.08 mustaches
The 2006 Slab Scrum champion added another honor to its expanding list: its first nine-mustache burrito. What’s next? The Gordo Blimp over the Rose Bowl?
3 - Papalote (Western Addition), July 14, 9.08 mustaches
The French didn’t have half the fun we had at Papalote on Bastille Day ‘07.
4 - Taq. El Castillito (Mission), December 31, 9.08 mustaches
2007’s top-rated breakfast burrito arrived in the year’s dying hours and ensured our panel a lethargic New Year’s Eve afternoon.
5 - El Burrito Express (Western Addition), November 20, 8.92 mustaches
By the end of this tour de force, Divisadero’s Burrito Train had locked down its first number one ranking on our hullabaloo’d Mustache Chart
