Lunch at Chipotle Mexican Grill

I found a new love. A fast food love. I discovered Chipotle and fell head over heels in love with their tacos. In fact I ate at Chipotle twice and in 2 different states.

Chipotle Mexican Grill is chain of restaurants that sell gourmet burritos and tacos. Just that.

Chipotle-1

They are known for having a simple, straightforward menu with only 5 items and 5 kinds of fillings.  They also put a strong emphasis on using organic and natural ingredients.

Choose your vessel: burrito, taco, bowl, fajita burrito or salad
Choose your filling: chicken, steak, carnitas, barbacoa or vegetarian

It’s that simple.
Chipotle-2

Your choice of salsas from mild to hot.
Chipotle-3

Chipotle-4

They make your order right in front of you in an assembly line that’s fast and efficient. I ordered the crunchy tacos and chose 3 different fillings – barbacoa, carnitas and chicken.
Chipotle-5

I chose the roasted chili corn salsa for all 3 tacos.
Chipotle-7

Top it with sour cream, cheese and lettuce and it’s done.
Chipotle-8

The shredded beef barbacoa was incredibly tender and a little spicy. The pork carnitas was a little bland but smoky. The chicken had a very nice grilled taste. The taco shell was super thin and crisp and was the perfect vessel for the super tasty meat fillings and corn salsa.

I ate this same combination of tacos both times I went to Chipotle. Why mess with perfection? I wish Chipotle would come to the Philippines.
