My Significant Other The very Mexican "Dommy!" of the LA board does not like the mission style steamed Burrito as is evidence from this Post about us aquiring a Fresh-o-matic Steamer for a friend:
As luck would have it we are going up there for Labor Day Weekend, Yeah it will suck with the bay bridge closed. Though I would like to give Her an example of a great Mission Burrito in the City. To me the steaming creates a solid mass which becomes better than the sum of its parts. My local one for lunch when I worked out of KQED was on Bryant at 18th street, Torrtilla Flats but I am not sure that will pass muster with her.
Also on the trip we will be going to some Old haunts for Me
The Taco Truck On Harrison.
King Of Thai Noodles
Good Luck Dim Sum
The Tamale Lady [Virginia, I hope you are where I think you are going to be]
And something which wasn't around while I was there and I can't wait to try on the drive up Old Port Lobster Shack
We also might try and get in a fancy dinner or two somewhere.
