The Burrito Blog

Welcome To Taqueria Cancun

One of the legendary spots in San Francisco's Mission District is Taqueria Cancun. I've got a lot of hate mail that begins, "Your blog sucks because you haven't been to Taqueria Cancun."

Time to silence the critics.

The music is out of control loud inside, and seating is family style on picnic tables.

The menu includes all kinds of authentic greats, including tortas, ceviche, pechuga suiza, lengua (tongue), and sesos (brains). Click on the picture of the menu for a full size version.

Note: not to be confused with Taqueria Cancun in Boston.

This entry is filed in Taqueria Cancun (CA).

Just found this bLog by mistake but I'm enjoying it :) I'm thinking of making a shirt that says: Good Burritos Don't Fall Apart so I can wear it to class and have my kids laugh and remember something.

The best part of Cancun is that they put a half an avocado in your burrito...not guac.

Plus, beer is like $2.

The key to eating a burrito at Taqueria Cancun (or for almost any SF burrito) is to make sure you don't unwrap it all at once. If you do so, the burrito falls apart and the experience isn't as good.

The proper technique is to only unwrap a small ring at a time--just enough depth for your average bite while still making sure you don't eat any aluminum foil--and repeat as necessary until the whole burrito is consumed. This technique also makes it a great portable food.

I haven't eaten here since I left SF two years ago and I truly miss the best burritos I have ever eaten.

I've found Cancun way before I started living in SF. Their Burrito Mohado always brought me back.
They've always been affordable, healthy, authentic without getting fancy, and their descent size are great for a big eater. They've also been a good hang over remedy before going out.
