Roadtrip Archives

In the summer of 2003, Charlotte and I decided to take a trip across the country by rental car (why a rental? Don't ask--it's complicated, dull, and annoying.), stopping at various friends along the way, seeing the sights, and culminating in our annual visit to the Burningman festival in Nevada. This is the diary we kept along the way.

More on food or eating our way through SF

Our mission today was the mission-style burrito, to be found (yup, you got it) down near Mission Street. We ended up at Ponch Villas on Chris Maden's advice. It is a busy joint serving the standard selection of burritos, tortillas, rellenos, and quesadillas. The line is fast moving. The food is cooked up while you wait/watch in line. I managed to eat half of my burrito (in all fairness I started lunch with an upset tummy and then forgot to ask for no cilantro) and a small dish of chips. Sebastian ate 7/8 of his. The horchato, a combo drink of sweetened rice milk, cinnamon, and ice, was not as good as the ones we had in Tucson with Andre. Sebastian gives the burrito a thumbs up. We had marriachi music during a bit of the meal. Sebaastian was a bit scared of the Poncho Villa bust watching over the patrons and the large collection of ribbons from the California State Fair Salsa competition.
