7x7 is happy to announce that Prisca "Asada" Chen is the winner of our burrito judge contest. She was up against some serious competition. But at the end of the day, there really was no other choice.
Was it was the fact that she has pictures of friends eating burritos plastered to her bedroom walls, or that her email handle has the word "burrito" in it, or the fact that she dressed up as a burrito (a very convincing one) for Halloween. Or maybe it was the fact that she did her senior thesis on burritos, accompanied by a documentary on burritos. This is no joke.
Next week, along with four of the city's top food experts—Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats, chef Matthew Accarrino of SPQR, Sunset magazine food editor Margo True and Burritoeater.com founder and editor Charles Hodgkins—Prisca will participate in a blind burrito tasting of seven of the city's top rated burritos. The winner will be announced in our February food issue.
