SAN FRANCISCO | Taqueria El Farolito is an iconic Mission taqueria, and has been feeding locals with tasty Mexican food since 1982. Being open until 3:00am most nights of the week means it’s a very popular spot for those looking for a feed at regular hours and the post bar and club crowds. Indeed, on most nights you’ll see a line snaking out the door. All ingredients are sourced fresh and high quality and the food here is always consistent.

The quesadillas here are top notch and there’s a lot to choose from including tacos and plates but as any local will tell you it’s all about the burritos. The San Francisco burrito (or Mission burrito) originated in the Mission district in the 1960s and is distinguished from other burritos by its large size, inclusion of extra rice and other ingredients, and use of a flour tortilla, primarily to aid structural integrity.

At El Farolito you’ve got a choice of seven different meats, including carne asada, lengua, and carnitas, and a number of toppings that you can add as you choose. It’s all about customisation and getting exactly the burrito that you want. For us the best option is the carnitas burrito filled with rice, beans, onions, tomatoes, and cilantro, with optional guacamole and cheese.

Many say that El Farolito make the best burrito in town, but we can’t help but think that there might be a bit of post partying nostalgia coming into play here. The burritos here are tasty for sure, and you’ll always leave satisfied, but for us this is more of a late night venue when we’re in need of a feed and quality options are thin on the ground. During more sociable hours we’d be heading to La Taqueria or Papalote, which nail the flavours and proportions of ingredients better.
