How to Eat a Burrito 

Today George and I had lunch at the new Moe's (warning: site has sound) on campus. He mentioned that the last time he was there he saw a lot of people who didn't know how to eat the huge, foil-wrapped burritos. They took them out of the foil and tried to munch them sideways, with disastrous results. He was glad that I had showed him the proper way to eat a southwest-style burrito back when Yo Burrito opened in Shandon.

So, since there are apparently people out there who still don't know how to eat a large burrito, I have provided these handy instructions:
how to eat a burrito

  1. Stand the burrito on end and peel the foil down partway like you're peeling a banana.

  2. Proceed eating, starting with the exposed end and working your way down (see diagram at left).

  3. If you want to spice up your burrito, do so by pouring hot sauce into the open end after you've taken a bite.

I hope that by writing this, I've kept at least one person from dumping rice and beans all over his lap.
