burrito competition

domesticgodess May 30, 2007 11:02 AM

after reading all sorts of recommendations..I finally had a "burrito tour'. I checked out burrito boyz, burrito brothers and new york sub.
All of them...were DELICIOUS.
But if I had to pick a winner...I loved the burrito from new york sub the best. It was tasty, tasty, tasty.
Im a veggie..so most of the time I had a fish burrito (halibut) and at new york sub I had a spinach/potato burrito. YUMMY.

    You forgot my favourite, Big Fat Burrito in Kensington Market. Excellent steak burrito there, although that one is not for you! IMHO, if you have some culinary skills, you can make better ones at home than these joints do.

      Sorry if this sounds critical and I realize it's a serious digression but it's something that I've always wondered about.

      How is it that one can eat fish (the flesh of a living being) and still be considered vegetarian? Wouldn't pescatarian be more accurate?

        ok basileater..I get your point.
        I'm a vegetarian that still eats fish. Hows that?

          I have often wondered this myself basileater.

          I have friends that say, "oh, I'm a vegetarian but I eat chicken"

          WTF!??!
