Boston burrito fun facts

In pondering a Matt Yglesias post regarding DC Burritos(or lack thereof) I learned that my two favorite local burrito chains(Anna's Taqueria and Boca Grande) are owned by siblings... Michael and Mariko Kamio... and they both modeled their shops after their cousin's in San Fransico. Huh. I guess neither can really be that bitter, since they're both presumably making money hand over fist and have been for some time... but you'd think you might wonder if the other couldn't have opened up a burger joint instead. But then, is there really such a thing as burrito saturation? I say no.
