How do you stand out in a city known for its incredible tacos? Give them burritos.
You could say local entrepreneur Isaac Mogannam lives for the hustle (and has a good eye for successful food concepts). He’s the man behind Austin favorites Plow Burger, PlowBQ, and Plow Bao. But now, he’s on to the next.
Say hello to Mission Street Burrito, a vegan food truck specializing in San Francisco-style burritos.
In a former life, Mogannam spent his days opening restaurants and eating burritos in San Francisco’s Mission District, an area known for its authentic taquerias. Once in Austin—and with his burrito standards sky high—he realized no one was nailing it. Sometimes, you gotta do things yourself.
Ready for the plot twist? Mission Street Burrito only has one burrito on the menu: The Super Burrito. This filled-to-the-brim handheld is packed with traditional Mexican flavors, vegan proteins (seasoned using generations-old recipes) from LA-based Plant Ranch, and housemade guac all rolled into a locally-sourced tortilla.
Anyone can throw some beans and lettuce into a tortilla and call it a burrito. This, friends is not that. Head to the mobile eatery in Riverside to taste for yourself why this Mission-style staple hits different.
