thumbnail for Taqueria CancunThis is my go-to burrito spot in SF. I don't know what kind of magic they work on their Pollo Asado Super Burrito but I can't find anything like it anywhere else in the country. I know naming a favorite burrito spot in SF is controversial -- but now that I live in Seattle I'd love any of these legendary burrito places to open a Seattle outpost!
