Somebody is trying to get the burrito battles started again. LA Weekly food writer Jonathan Gold has a blog post today just ripping into Northern California burritos. And San Franciscans are taking the bait. He calls our burritos, “monstrous things wrapped in tinfoil, and filled with what would seem to be the contents of an entire margarita-mill dinner.” He then goes on to call us out for, in addition to the common Southern Californian rice complaint, “yellow cheese.” Now, we’re not sure which Mission burrito has yellow cheese, but we’ve never seen it.
Anyway, this battle flares up from time to time, and while it may (or may not) be a worthwhile debate, it’s also a fair barometer of which end of the state cares more about its online rep. Predictably, SFist’s post on the topic has 51 comments as of this writing, while LAist’s has seven, including one by SFist editor Brock Keeling: “pst, your burritos are secretly much, much better.” Traitor.
