How to roll a taqueria-style burrito?

Bananna A. | Apr 7, 2007 08:28 AM

Okay, none of this "leave one side open" stuff for me. I'm looking for video or a spankingly good series of illustrations on how to roll the San-Francisco-style-tight-tube burrito. I know how to roll one sloppily at home, but I need some kind of pictorial to get that snug lil' burro.
I want the one that doesn't unravel after the foil comes off, if you know what I mean. In fact, it has enough structure to stand tall without foil, if the fillings aren't too jucy.

Anyone have a good link for this? (I've spent way too much time searching for one, and the signal to noise ratio is really high now that everyone has to say "that's just how I roll" on their blogs.) I've been considering ordering five burritos in a row just to get the counterperson to show me how it's done.
