So freakin' good!

Our latest obsession is with the burritos at Chipotle Mexican Grill.

Such a simple idea. 4 kinds of meat, two different kinds of beans, 4 different kinds of salsa. Add some tomatoes, some cheese, some sour cream, a little's a meal. Except I usually skip the guac. Personal choice.

I hope I never find out how bad this shit is for me, because I could literally eat it every day. Gia too. I just wish there were one a little closer to home. Like next door. Or in my bedroom. I want a Chipotle in every room of the house.

THAT'S how much I dig it right now.


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. All the faux Mexican food chains are doing it.

I've heard of this but I haven't been there. I need to see if there's one in the area. People on mention it all the time.

I'm thinking maybe a lot of gas as a result of Mexican food.

A Chipotle in every room, but also an open window in every room as a precaution?

Or is it just me?

This just in from the irrelevant outdated humor files...If Tommy Lee can put a Starbucks in his house (saw it on Cribs) and his burrito in Pamela Anderson(saw it through a friend of a friend *wink*) can most definitely put a burrito in your house. Question is...where you gonna put your Starbucks!

TOO SOON (aka too early for that shit)?!?!?

*drops mic and walks off-stage*

Steph - and so cheap too! Delish!

Zibbs - closest one to you is in Ardmore, I believe. A bunch of them in and around the Philly area.

Jimmy - strangely enough it doesn't affect me that way. The 300 beers I had last night unfortunately did, though.

WLC - I would put my Starbucks in Pamela Anderson, of course. Huh? I may be too tired and too hungover to really talk about it.

, two different kinds of beans I LIKE BEANS!!!

, 4 different kinds of salsa. LOVE SALSA!!!

Add some tomatoes, some cheese, some sour cream, a little guacamole.. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE and LOVE!!

I would probably have to pass though because I don't eat meat?? Are there substitutions? LIke tofu? Like more beans? :O)

I would even eat chicken? MAYBE!!!!!


Verdant Earl said...

Michelle - they make a veggie burrito as well. Basically the same as the meat burrito sans the meat. You can also order a salad with all the burrito stuffing piled on top. Gia's mother loves that one. The meats are chicken, shredded beef, shredded pork and diced steak. My favorite is the shredded beef (Barbacoa). Yum.

Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat. They only make a couple of things, but they make them well.

My favorite: Carnitas burrito, pinto beans, half a scoop of tomato salsa, sour cream, and cheese.


Verdant Earl said...

Ookami - I had the Carnitas burrito last night. Yum to the um!

While it's a bit more than other places, I go to Chipotle often. Good food and worth the extra price.

Verdant Earl said...

Marty - I thought it was fairly inexpensive. Of course I live in a place where everything is expensive!

Bruce Johnson said...

This place opitimizes the American ethic these days....good food, but way more than one person should eat in any one sitting. I would split one of these with someone before I ordered on just for myself.

Verdant Earl said...

Bruce - One is a little too much for me for lunch as wel, but it's a decent sized dinner.

Poppy said...

I've still never been to one. Just looked at a map. Would it KILL them to put one in Queens or above 48th Street?! :)

Poppy said...

(I am such a New Yorker now... *tsk*)

Verdant Earl said...

Poppy - There is one on 52nd street, but I hear ya. You Nu Yawkah, you.

Poppy said...

East? Cuz East doesn't help my West side ass. :)
