With the Super Bowl 2016 Almost on us, the rest of the country turns its gaze to San Francisco. As with any major national event that draws hordes of visitors outside of the city, there are numerous guides outlining what to do and where to eat while visiting the City by the Bay.

Today it was New York Times’ again, in which they gave their own tips for “A Super Bowl experience in San Francisco with or without a ticket”.

As for food, Times writer Justin Sablich sought the advice of an “insider,” Benjamin Hoffman, whom the story describes as a “Brooklynite who grew up in the East Bay.” Of particular note is their burrito discussion, where Mr. Hoffman points out a lack of good burritos in his current life:

For a low key and classic San Francisco dining experience, Mr. Hoffman recommends El Farolito in the Mission District.

“It’s almost cliché to say it’s ‘the burrito place’ but it really is ‘the burrito place’ for a reason,” said Hoffman, but added, “If you can find Taqueria at Mission, are you fine. “

San Francisco: home of burritos.
