Happy Memorial Day! How privilege and thankful I am to be able to enjoy a beer, carnitas burrito from Gordo Taqueria while watching game 4 Warriors/Rockets game.
The Warriors lost tonight in Huston against a win or go home Rockets team. Made most of the night by sharing my thoughts on what I believe is one of the best burritos that you can find in San Francisco. Gordo Taqueria makes good carne asada and pollo but their carnitas is just so amazing with its flavors, great crunch from the bark, and the right balance of salt. There are many ways one can order their burrito at Gordo but I enjoy my carnitas burrito in a simple basic way: rice, refried beans, cheese, carnitas, and their green sauce. By ordering the burrito this way allows the carnitas to truly be the star of the meal instead of being shadowed by other flavors such as guacamole, or salsa, or what ever else one would like to place in their burrito.
There are many great taquerias in the Bay Area and all over the US. Where’s yours and what is your favorite thing to order from the menu?
