CHIPOTLE MEXICAN GRILL (in Burnaby): LIFE IS BURRITOFUL ABOUT 1,000 CALORIES

Share on Google Plus

Chipotle is located on the second floor of Metrotown right besides A&W. It is a convenient location if you want to have a quick bite before or after shopping. Although there was a long line-up ahead of me, it went by pretty fast as the service was pretty quick. Their menu is quite simple. You can choose the type of meal first from a selection of burrito, burrito bowl, crispy tacos, soft tacos and salad (everything is $8.95). Then, you choose the main ingredient from Grilled Chicken, Steak, Barbacoa, Carnitas, and Fajita Vegetables. And then you can add more stuff like beans, cilantro-lime rice (either brown or white), four different types of salsa, cheese, sour cream, romaine lettuce and guacamole. You need to pay extra $2.21 for guacamole, but anything else is free. 

Definitely it is not the most appetizing picture of food... but it was delicious!
Since I had a Carnitas Burrito yesterday, I got a Barbacoa Burrito Bowl with Guacamole (+ Pinto beans, cilantro-lime white rice, tomatillo-green chilli salsa, roasted chili-corn salsa, cheddar and jack cheese, sour cream and lettuce). Barbacoa is spicy, tender shredded beef, braised with chipotle chilies, garlic, oregano, cumin and cloves. It was as tasty as Carnitas that I tried yesterday. Carnitas had a similar tender texture to Barbacoa, but was different in flavour. Carnitas is naturally raised pork, braised with thyme, bay, juniper berries and cracked black pepper (not spicy). Both tasted pretty good but I preferred Carnitas! If you haven't tried it, it is worth trying once at least. 
As a side note: It'd better taste good when one meat burrito is over 1,000 calories....

PROS
+ Fast service
+ Tasty burrito (I'm not a fan of burritos but I liked it)
+ Delicious guacamole 

CONS
- Veggie burrito should be cheaper.. although I order meat ones only
