The Burrito Blog

Taqueria Cancun (CA)

Keyser Sesos

Sesos is cow brains. And it's in my taco.

Phil and I split the taco. He was able to finish his half. I couldn't do more than a couple bites.

Brains tastes like organ meat. It's really soft and the smell reminds me of 10th grade biology lab. I don't think I'll try it again.

Much of my distaste for brains was probably mental, which is ironic. Ha!

This Taqueria Cancun (CA) meal was rated: 2.2.

Excitement, Ingredients Not Contained

Having finally arrived at Taqueria Cancun, I was a little discouraged to have my burrito fall apart. The wrap was super tight, which is rare for a specimen with a grilled tortilla. Yes, Taqueria Cancun uses grills, not steam.

Phil joined me, but I forget what he had.

While lacking in structural integrity, the carne asada burrito was definitely above average with respect to taste.

This Taqueria Cancun (CA) meal was rated: 7.1.

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.
