general question regarding mexican burritos

erika | Oct 30, 200301:32 PM

hey everyone...i wanted to post this on the CA board before i posted it on the NY board, since thats my 20 and i think you all may have more knowledge. so, are burritos available in most regions in mexico? most of the mexicans in this area are from puebla, but anyway, today i went to my local taqueria and ordered a burrito w/ no carne. i asked for frijoles negroes instead of refried beans, but they gave me refried beans anyway (my spanish is enough to get by pretty much). i know it's not common to order something w/ no meat at the taquerias, but i just don't like to eat meat on a daily basis. i also asked them if they could substitute shrimps, but the guy who speaks some english said no. anyway, a burrito there costs $6, and i can see if they put meat it in or something, but they still charged $6 for a vegetarian one. it comes w/ a few slices of avocado, some nice red tomato pieces, a coupla lime wedges, some lettuce and salsa on the side (i ask for salsa verde). i just think to charge $6 (it wasnt that big) is a lot for a bean and cheese burrito. do you think this was too much, or normal? the other day i went to another taqueria and got this fantastic shrimp burrito that was HUGE for about $9 (the shrimps were nice sized and generous), and it was delicious. it had all kinds of stuff in it, rice, black beans, tomatoes, onion, avocado, i think a little guac, etc. and i asked if this was like a mission style burrito. the girl said yes, but i dont know if she understood what i was saying. what exactly constitutes a mission burrito? i was there about a month ago and am mad i didnt have a burrito there. next time. but any thoughts are greatly appreciated. hasta luego!
