85 Taquerias in 10 weeks?

Talk about taking your job seriously. Bill Addison, six weeks into his residency in the Bay Area and his job as food critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, received an assignment to “explore the Bay Area’s taqueria scene.” And explore he did. “I made it to 85 in 10 weeks,” he writes. Think about this for a second… there are only 70 days in 10 weeks. That is an average of 1.21 taquerias a day. That is disturbing.

Addison writes about our beloved taquerias with the wide-eyed enthusiasm that only a newcomer could show. He even includes a top 20. Bay Area newcomers take heed: gorging yourself on tacos and burritos is a great way to get to know San Franciso!

    Why bother when there’s the excellent burritoeater.com? I suppose it will be interesting to compare their findings…

    I’m just happy the guy didn’t hit my personal favorite, as I’d cry if the lines got any longer than they already are! And NO, I’m not saying which one!

    (dang. now I’m totally craving a carnitas burrito.)
