Back in the late 60's there was a restaurant in El Paso named La Paloma that made the best burrito I've ever had. It was served on 12 inch flour tortilla and was filled with a gravy that had big chunks of meat and potatoes with green chilies that gave it just a bit of fire. Man, I could eat one of those daily if they were still around.{#Hungry}

now that i'm thinking about it

my first experience with real burritos were rice-less in the sense that the rice was a side dish (seated dining)

burrito was center plate with some lovely orange gravy, sort of like the sun in our solar system

and the rice, beans and salad/sala/pico were planets/satellites in orbit, plated but not totally deconstructed

queso blanco sprinkled over the entire dish like stars...lol

however i do recognize the natural versatility/utility of the tortilla, especially in to go or un-plated situations

i've also noticed that many foods/dishes have certain absorption rates/properties (maybe a biscuit to gravy ratio)

we could call it the btg ratio which could be crucial in these applications

too juicy and your lap or shoes could get the fallout, too dry and you're struggling to get it down

i can see where building the perfect street burrito for the masses needs to be an inclusive food experience

like you took a plate of food and rolled it up, all the goodies in the proper btg ratio
{#Hungry}

 
There's a food truck here that is nothing but btg.

Burrito joints def. use rice to make the things huge without adding anything valuable. That said, I like how rice gathers up some of the goody that would otherwise wind up in my lap.

pretty funny

not that it really matters but is the little burritonaut holding a pistola?

 

Not in the official logos that I can find, but every tattoo I can find, they're all modified a little. The official logo doesn't have anything there but I see tats with bottles of beer, a stick of dynamite, a burrito...
