So I am in the US for a week for a week on business and have been doing the whole ‘table for one’ when I go out for dinner so tonight I decided against sitting at the bar reading the newspaper chatting to the bartender and decided to go for a takeaway and eat in my room (in my pyjamas, sitting on the bed watching TV – I may never go home).
Anyhoo tonight’s I opted for Mexican cuisine as that is the one type of food I am finding hard to get in London but know that the US can do it well. The restaurant was called Chipotle and is a fairly well known chain (for everyone but me apparently). The concept is like a Mexican version of Mr Sub, you order then they dress your burrito/fajita/taco in front of you and put on your choice of salsa, sour cream, cheese, corn etc etc. I opted for a fajita wrap and drooled all the way down the sneeze guard as my fajita was dressed. In typical American style this wrap wasn’t jut a little taco bell style wrap it had to be about 4 pounds of solid yummyness that probably could have fed three hungry adults.
The wrap was delicious and if you are in the US looking for a quality quick service restaurant and are hungry I recommend Chipotle – oh and for the tech savvy amongst us – standing in a queue is like, soooo , yesterday – you can order your wrap in advance either online or on your iphone. how. cool. is. that? I might have to go back tomorrow just to try it out.
