A Belly (Uptown) Full of Burritos

“Extra green sauce, ok, the total is $17.35, it will be ready when you arrive.” Seriously?

Before I got into the whole food writing thing, I always felt pretty ignorant about food… let alone the standards of good food. What are these standards in the first place? Is it the taste?
