Found America’s Best Burrito in Yuma, Arizona | Tucson Restaurant News
My boss had this funny idea that I should eat 24 different burritos for breakfast, so I could show the good people in Tucson where to get one every hour of the day.
In my supreme naivety, I thought she was on to something and decided to take it up a notch: I would. actually eat the burritos at any time of the day, to fully immerse myself in this Me the writer recommended for you, the readers. (Guess I hadn’t had a burrito for breakfast in a while when I thought about it.) To better compare size versus price, I would weigh each one and rate them a scientific point of view. Plus, I would wear costumes.
What you are seeing is the result of a month-long project that took me to most of Tucson’s fast food burritos, but also a few diners and gourmet taquerias. Using my $ 20 food scale from Target, a notepad, and an old Nikon camera, I weighed the burritos, ate them, and rated them so you know what’s going on. Well.
Just so you don’t call the labor committee on the Star, I meant I didn’t eat all of this consecutively, not even on the same day. I took my time and jumped, but ate them all when I said I had. And it was hard enough, believe me!
Notes on me, so you don’t complain later:
– Just to rule that out, I’m not a big fan of potatoes. I’m not entirely averse to paws in my burritos, but I really think it’s a cheap filler / burrito crutch. I like them small or not at all.
– You will notice here that I had a disproportionate amount of chorizo burritos, because every time I walked into a place and asked the cashier what their favorite was, that’s what they would tell me.
– You may also notice that I tend to eat it towards the end of the hour. It wasn’t intentional, that’s just how I ride, always trendy late.
