Food Culture

Burrito is one of tortilla based foods. Meat, beans, Mexican rice, lettuce, cheese are common fillings rolled in burrito and people usually eat it with guacamole or sour cream on top or as a dip.
Another Mexican food-taco-looks similar to burrito, but there are slight differences between them. Taco is like a sandwich, various fillings can be added and wrapped around with a smaller round and hard tortilla; on the contrary, burrito is fully rolled and folded with a larger and softer tortilla.
In Mexico and the United States, burrito is a very popular food and its taste varies in different regions. Nowadays, the on-the-go burrito can be tasted in many cities worldwide and some fast food restaurants also release burrito combo to satisfy customers' appetite.
