Burritos Are For Lovers

I realize that I have not yet done an actual review of a meal at La Corneta Taqueria, but something more important has come up. Please reference the picture at right. From left to right: Caitlin, Andrew, Jen, Me (Phil).

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.

This La Corneta Taqueria meal was rated: 9.0.

Welcome to La Corneta Taqueria

La Corneta Outside
You may recently have seen a post in which Nate, one of Burrito Blog's friends, goes to town on a quesdailla from La Taqueria. However, Nate has done more for Burrito Blog than simply make entertaining cameos in our photos.

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.
