I stopped by Chipotle earlier today to see what it was all about. They just opened up a new location in Sonoma County. Although I briefly looked on Chipotle's website before going, I didn't quite realize how vegan-friendly they are. They actually have the word "vegan" on their menu board! AND people aren't running away after reading it!
So today I splurged and ordered a burrito. I was deciding between the vegetable burrito (peppers and onions) and the sofritas burrito (shredded tofu braised with chipotle chilis, roasted poblanos and aromatic spices). I kept hearing the girl behind the counter say the sofritas was a great choice, so I tried it. I'm glad I did! I really liked it and apparently it's a new menu item for Chipotle.
In the process of building my burrito, I also chose the cilantro-lime brown rice, black beans (keep in mind the pinto beans are cooked with bacon), salsa, and guacamole.
Needless to say, my burrito is all gone! I'm still so full. Next time I will probably skip the tortilla and just go for the burrito bowl.
