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.


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.

Your choice of salsas from mild to hot.


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.

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

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

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.
