I have never even heard of a California style burrito, let alone a Northern California style burrito. And other than in Berlin Germany, I'm certain that there is no such burrito.
I doubt that there is such a degree as Doctor of Burritos, or a Burrito, Ph.D., but if there were such, I would be a good doctoral candidate for that. Even in Mexico, where, if you ask for a burrito in Northern Mexico you will get a food item. But in Southern Mexico, ordering a burrito may net you a baby burro, pictured below. And while once in Ensenada, Baja California Frontera, I had a machaca burrito, and was told it was made of burro, I doubt that this is a common experience. Except in Mexico and never in Northern (or Southern) California. So my best guess is that, to traveled Germans, the San Francisco area has a better quality of food than the Los Angeles area. And there is some truth to this. They take their foodstuffs far more seriously around the Bay. Still, the notion of a regional category of California burritos tickles my funny bone. More than a little.
