La Corneta Taqueria
Burritos Are For Lovers
Caitlin and Andrew are college friends of mine. In fact, I lived with Andrew for all four years. The two recently visited me out in San Francisco from Boston, and though Andrew is a huge Chipotle fan, I took him them to La Corneta.
While the meal was solid, the company was better. We laughed and shared stories over sour cream and guacamole. But that's not the best part.
During their trip to wine country later that week, Andrew proposed to Caitlin and the two got engaged. I don't claim to know whether or not the burrito from La Corneta had any influence on Andrew's actions, but perhaps an experiment on the aphrodisiac effect of pinto beans is in order.
Congratulations, you two. We will toast horchata at your wedding.
Welcome to La Corneta Taqueria
Nate lived in San Francisco before I moved here, and one of the first places he took me was La Corneta Taqueria on Mission St. between 23rd and 24th (Map). At first I was skeptical. The inside of La Corneta has an odd look wherein it is both colorful, and at the same time looks almost sterile. My first impression was that it sort of looked like one of those playgrounds they have at McDonald's. Apparently, many people are initially skeptical about La Corneta for the same reason.
As it turns out, the food is pretty good there. If it weren't a bit far from me (relative to the other 3,000 taquerias in the Mission), I'd probably go there much more often. Still, it's worth a trip every once in a while.
