Chipotle

You got it. The first eating post must absolutely be reserved for Chipotle. If you know anything about us, you know that Chipotle has become something of our second home.

The first time I tried Chipotle was actually in Ann Arbor, Michigan when I was visiting my friend, Caleb, and I was NOT impressed in the slightest. “Moe’s is totally better,” I thought to myself (but only because they have that delicious queso which, I admit, would be a great addition to Chipotle’s menu). I’m not really sure of the moment when I decided that Chipotle was awesome, but I know it was during a time when there wasn’t a Chipotle in Tallahassee. I peed my pants when I saw they were building not one, but TWO Chipotle restaurants in town. I used to get a burrito every time I went. This was back when we were living near campus, and there was a Chipotle right down the road.

Everyday after the gym I would grab a chicken burrito with white rice, black beans, mild and medium salsa, sour cream, cheese, guac (is extra), and lettuce. Needless to say, multiple wrappings were needed for my burritos. But then I stumbled across a calorie counter online and what I saw changed my life. The amount of terrible things in the tortilla, sour cream, cheese, and white rice floored me.

Now, however, I’ve managed to change my staple to the following:

  • Burrito bowl
  • Brown rice
  • Black beans
  • Chicken
  • Mild
  • Medium
  • Guac
  • Lettuce

then I DOUSE it in Chipotle Tobasco (basically hot sauce sent from the fucking Gods). RJ’s selection is a little different, but similar enough:

  • Burrito bowl
  • Brown rice
  • No beans
  • 1/2 Chicken, 1/2 Barbacoa
  • Mild
  • Hot
  • Corn
  • Guac
  • Lettuce

and again, DOUSED in Chipotle Tobasco.

I know that Chipotle isn’t the best, but it certainly beats any McDonald’s or Burger King when it comes to who’s healthier (though I think a dead corpse of a cow is healthier than Mickey D’s or BK).

In the end, the Eating blog just didn’t seem complete without Chipotle being first and foremost. Those of you who watch our videos know we basically live there, and the employees know us on a first name basis. To be honest, I hope there’s a Chipotle in heaven. In fact, I hope Chipotle is heaven.

  1. In one of the vlogs, RJ orders fajita and not barbacoa. Is one more common than the other?

  2. I’m going to be in the USA for an exchange trip in February and they have a Chipotle in the town I am going to, but I’ll probably only have the chance to go once.
    What should I get?
    N.B. I don’t like spicy food.
