Burritos are efficient, economical, portable, and delicious. And while you may just put them all under the umbrella of “gut bomb,” there are actually various burrito styles to be had in NYC: The over-stuffed, rice-filled San Francisco Mission-style burrito; the meat-centric San Diego-style burrito; and now, thanks to Mission Cantina’s Danny Bowien, the “cheffy” burrito.
