Next time you're in Berlin and craving something different to eat from the normal German fare, try a Mission Burrito. For those of you not familiar with this culinary masterpiece, Mission burritos are famous for not only their girth, but their variety (Burrito Easter has sampled 913 different Mission Burritos) and value. Wrapped in an extra large tortillas you'll find everything from tongue to brain to pork. Basically anything that can be eaten from a cow, chicken, or pig can be found wrapped up along side rice, beans, salsa, guac, cheese, sour cream. If it sounds like a recipe for food coma, you're right. And a delightful coma at that. While some chains like Chipotle, have tried to co-opt and franchise the Mission Burrito, truly the Mission Neighborhood in San Francisco remains the only authentic place to enjoy these delectables. That being said, copying is the sincerest form of flattery, and we encourage the upstarts around the world attempting to spread the Mission Burrito love around the world. One such establishment, Doloros Burrito in the Alexenderpltaz section of Berlin, evidently does a decent job. So say the experts.
Via SF Bay.

Shanghai is a fantastic culinary destination. From scrumptious Shanghainese food, to tantalizing Thai, to hearty burgers Shanghai has it all, and you can get it all for cheap. The best part about eating out in Shanghai is that you can have the meal of your life, with drinks, for fewer than 25 dollars a person. Here are some of my favorite eateries:

Tapas, that famous, tasty Spain treat is probably the finest happy/cocktail hour snack. They can e intricate or simple, they can be ornate or plain, but usually, they are delicious. One of our favourite cities, Granada Spain has a list of top tapas bars, since the dollar is stronger now, perhaps you should check them out, prices from $800 here on Mobissimo.

While Budweiser served in a random bar in the United States is one thing, to hoist a pint to your lips in a place where a sense of tradition, history, and decades/centuries of drunkeness have taken place in a cathedral of beer is pretty cool too. Read more here via the Times.

Flying first class is expensive, no doubt. I've flown Lufthansa and Thai and can attest to their special service. On a connection from Geneva to the states via Frankfurt, a Benz was waiting for me on the tarmac to take me to my LH flight back to the states in Frankfurt. Small touch, but so, as Ron Burgundy would say, 'classy.' Regardless of the service, airline food, at least to me remains horrible. It's not really cooked, it's just reheated, and those cookies you smell are just heated as well. I would rather see Inga back the in the galley making them from scratch, but whatever, I always bring my own food anyway. Food is also getting an upgrade as top flight chefs and sommeliers are making the airlines the new battle ground. More here via CNN.
