Emoji dictionary 🌯 Burrito emoji [buh-ree-toh ih-moh-jee] Published December 4, 2018 What does 🌯 Burrito emoji mean? Mmmmmm. The burrito emoji depicts a rolled up tortilla, with different platforms showing ingredients like beans and cheese poking out. (You can even discern the cilantro in Apple’s version, which looks darn delicious.) In many versions, it’s wrapped in foil–”Mission” style, named for the Mission District of San Francisco–which, if you ask us, is hands-down the best way to eat a burrito. As you might imagine, the burrito emoji is mostly used in posts about food. Mostly.

The Shorty Awards Did you know the word “burrito” translates to “little donkey?” It may be because a burrito faintly resembles bed rolls that donkeys sometimes carry. Though the burrito first appeared in Mexico, by most accounts, sometime in the mid-1800s, the Mesoamerican peoples of Mexico used corn tortillas in 10,000 B.C. to wrap food. In Mexico, the tortillas generally convey bean and meat, and little else, but in the U.S., you might find lettuce, diced tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream, rice, cheese and a number of other items, just to ensure your post-burrito-eating experience makes you feel as full and uncomfortable as possible. In a good way. The burrito emoji kept food good company when it was approved as part of Unicode 8.0 in 2015: it made its debut with the taco, hot dog, popcorn and cheese wedge. The burrito was added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
