Mission Burrito, Houston

Earlier this summer I visited the great state of Texas. I was especially excited for this trip because Stephen, over the course of the past few years, has continuously extolled the virtues of authentic Tex-Mex cuisine, which is as delicious as it is ubiquitous in Houston, his hometown. According to him, Mission Burrito is the Mecca of his Tex-Mex belief system. We stopped by the Mission Burrito location that he dined at practically every day during high school right after our flight. The generous, Texas-sized portions, hearty, full-bodied flavor, and casual atmosphere was exactly what I needed.

These burritos are, simply put, massive. The standard, restaurant supply sized piece of aluminum foil couldn’t even hold the whole thing.


Digging in to a gigantic chicken burrito. At this point, it looks like I’m still rocking my spring quarter finals week under-eye bags.


Check out the inside of this burrito. Everything just melded together so wonderfully. Though I probably wouldn’t get it again, Stephen suggested an over-the-top drizzle of melted cheese before they rolled up the burrito. It was definitely tasty, but I prefer my burrito to be on the drier side, with all the flavors inside the burrito cleanly differentiated.Image
