Desk Lunch Less Exciting, Still Delicious

I'll admit it, I'm still not fully acclimated to the real world. I especially have trouble getting used to the fact that sometimes there's just no time to enjoy lunch. Well, they can confine me to my desk and make me speed through lunch, but they can't limit my choices.

In about 10 minutes, I can get down the street to El Zorro, order a super steak burrito (like the one pictured at right) and be back to work. And that's all the time I need.

Though staring at my phone and keyboard while I dine is not the most picturesque of settings, El Zorro's super burritos still provide a great lunch that won't let you down. There's nothing particularly remarkable about them, nor are they especially a bargain, but the burritos at El Zorro are solid and consistent, and they taste very good. Even at my desk, lunch is usually the highlight of my day.

Welcome to El Zorro

With a new job, comes a new lunchtime taqueria. You may remember from previous posts that my last job brought me in close proximity to Pancho's, which turned out to be a disaster of a taqueria. Whether or not my new job is a step up or not, I can unequivocally say that my new lunchtime taqueria is a vast improvement.

Taqueria El Zorro probably doesn't get the recognition it deserves because it's situated in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood (Map), which is better known for overpriced, greasy, unimaginative, tourist-trap Italian restaurants masquerading as authentic, high-end Italian cuisine, but in actuality are probably much closer in quality to Olive Garden.

I say next time you're in North Beach, skip the spaghetti and calamari and get yourself a burrito from El Zorro. They don't have the outdoor seating that many of the Italian places have, but you can always get it to-go and walk up Columbus a few blocks to Washington Square for some nice outdoor dining.
