8 of the Best Burritos in San Diego


Inside: 8 of the Best Burritos in San Diego

You guys… I am moving in a week, eeek! Moving to a place that, upon mention, meets me with the same blank stare, the same cautionary, “oh good for you” smile, every time.

I am crazy nervous about it. Although, I have found out that Reno does have this beautiful lake, a bed swing, pretty balloons, amazing docks to throw parties on, snow, and strawberry salads. I am excited that I already have two photo shoots planned in San Fransisco! I am thrilled that it is nice and cheap to live there. Which means I can afford fabulous business necessities like an office, an assistant… Who knows, maybe even this lovely for my space (HA)!

I will miss San Diego, for sure, especially the burritos and the beach. Luckily though I have learned to make my own (recipe here) and plan to take that fabulousness with me up north. Every brunch needs a burrito! So as a farewell and for all of you who may visit San Diego in the future I have rounded out 8 of the best burritos in San Diego!

    The good news is: There is some killer Mexican food in Reno. A large Hispanic community should keep you pretty happy on that front. I’ve had some great tacos there back in my traveling days.
