Airport Burrito, Airport Prices
I went with the steak classic burrito from Currito, add guacamole. As a long time adversary of the cilantro lime rice, I wasn't expecting much.
The Currito burrito was strictly average in every way but one.

Welcome To Currito
Headquartered in Ohio, Currito's first year of operation was difficult to glean. Their website was written in Latin as recently as July of 2007. No, Currito does not predate English; websites are often mocked up with Latin before the real content is written. By August 2007, the site noted seven locations in five states. So we'll guess they opened doors spring / summer 2007.
A few options here.
- Urban Dictionary said 'Currito' is what you get when you try to spell 'Burrito' with T9 on certain mobile phones.
- A Spanish-English Dictionary states: currito, -a, masculine or feminine noun, 1. (ordinary) worker (informal) (peninsular Spanish)
- The Currito site repeats the phrase "Currito serves the cure for the common burrito." Oh? I didn't know it was infected.
The Currito menu (official pdf) features chicken, steak, or tofu fillings in one of many worldly wrap styles: Teriyaki, Mediterranean, Cajun, Buffalo, and Bangkok. Thankfully they also have what they call

Take A Break From The Books
A couple years ago, Mr. Fink showed me The (Big) Enchilada. Now it was my turn.
For $5.50 we each picked up an Olecito burrito that comes with guacamole and a side of chips and salsa.
Take a break from Inman legend Punjabi Dhaba and check out Olecito. Definitely worth it.
Welcome To Olecito
Like the style, the pricing is also much more my flavor.
Olecito opened mid 2008, but Burrito Blog needlessly delayed reviewing this little Inman Square eatery. If you're headed in that direction, make sure you don't go too late; Olecito closes at 10 on weekends and 9 during the week.Olecito.

Thanks to Nancy for the tip.
Check out the full story, Customers continue to order tacos and burritos as vows are exchanged.
I especially like this part:
Caragh Brooks, 21, of Australia, met Paul Brooks, 30, on an Internet dating Web site. They already had the same last name.And
"It's appropriate," groom Paul Brooks said. "It's an offbeat relationship."No kidding. Way to break the mold and think outside the bun. I love it.

El Pelon Closed Due To Fire, Again
This is really tragic. I can't imagine the nightmare of having your taqueria burn down twice in just over a year.
El Pelon, which first caught on fire in December of 2007, was rebuilt by February 2008. Early January 2009, the rebuilt El Pelon was the victim of a much more devastating fire that swept through all the restaurants that line Peterborough Street.
I'm not sure what their plans are this time, but we all hope El Pelon is able to make a second comeback.El Pelon Taqueria.
