At a recent Ignite San Diego session — where you get 20 slides and five minutes — presenter Scott Cole described his systematic evaluation of the burritos of San Diego using ten dimensions of awesomeness.


Norma and Jerry Stevens met and fell in love at a taqueria in North Hollywood, moved to Ohio, and opened up Norma’s Casa de Tacos in Boardman (near Youngstown). Ten years later, their Jalisco-style Mexican food is an overnight sensation. [Video by the Business Journal Daily.]


The video’s creators call Bacon-Wrapped Breakfast Burrito “food porn”. Mmmm! Porn for breakfast! On the other hand, shouldn’t this be called a chimichanga?


Looks pretty good, actually. A legit chicken teriyaki recipe, authentic pico de gallo/salsa made with grilled piña, and of course everything tastes better on a tortilla. We have three questions, though:

  1. Where did the rice come from?
  2. How can it be a “healthier” with a lettuce wrap instead of a tortilla? Corn tortillas are GLUTEN FREE, ENGLISH DUDE. Also, no tortilla, no taco.
  3. Wassup with the Christmas music soundtrack on a video uploaded March 27?
