Guys, I just ate a bunch of Chipotle and now I have the itis. How the hell am I going to finish work now? I just want to crawl under my desk and take a nap.

Chipotle is mediocre and overpriced. White people can't roll burritos for SHIT. It unravels and spills every damn time. I'm glad I live in a place with lots of Mexicans and tacquerias where I can get a larger and better tasting burrito for a fraction of the price that's been rolled so that it doesn't come apart

i moved from sf to seattle and worried that i might have resort to chipotles or some shit for an okay burrito but i can still find good burritos at legit mexican taquerias here, though they're not as fucking everywhere like in the bay.

point being, not sure what part of the US you have to live in to have to resort to chipotles for a burrito fix. i've had to resort to chipotles and similar chains when i was in Japan and Canada but that's it.

Only time I've eaten there the burrito was made into a big ball. It tasted just fine but I'd rather have someone who doesn't speak English make it.

There's a Chipotle within walking distance of where I live but I enjoy their burritos and burrito bowls though I did get food poisoning one weekend last January cause of that whole E.coli thing.

>Mexican food elitists

I used to be like that especially about pizza, being an Italian in NYC (the most dangerous pizzalitism combo)
Then I just eventually accepted that shit like Domino's is another style of food, not just some inferior form of Italian cuisine. There's a certain time of the night when you sort of just want to order a pan pizza with 6 toppings.

I eat Mexican food all the time as well but I can appreciate Chipotle and Chipotle-likes (moes, qdoba) as well.

I find a lot of Californians tend hold this snobby attitude for some reason; I've been there enough times to see it. I think it may be because they have nothing else to brag about, except for in-n-out.

How is that elitism? Chipotle burritos are like 60% rice, the meat is soupy and practically flavorless, they're rolled in such a way that they burst and spill everywhere, and they cost like $9, vs the $6-7 you pay at a proper tacqueria for a larger burrito that isn't primarily rice, is rolled properly, and has actual flavor. If you want to throw your money away on marketing and hype that's your prerogative, but don't accuse others of snobbery because they prefer to get a better value for their money.

Not quite sure what you mean by this.
Here's a burrito bowl from my local chipotle. I always ask for a wrap on the side so that I can make a burrito out of it + eat whatever else is left in the bowl. The soupiness of the meat comes from whatever optional sauces you added on to it (see pic). I don't see how this is a bad deal. On top of this, they give away coupons left and right. I've used a handful of BOGO coupons for burritos and they're constantly tossing free-chips-and-guac deals around like candy (this has been going on ever since their e coli scandal happened and the stock plummeted and they've been trying to salvage their reputation). If you took advantage of those sorts of things, you'd be looking at pretty cheap prices for the stuff you order.

I do agree that the prices become too much when you order a burrito with guac and get no deals or anything. It's why I prefer qdoba, another chain just like chipotle, that gives the guacamole for free.

>If you wanna throw away your money to marketing and hype
That's what I meant by 'elitism' by the way :^)

The soupiness comes from the fact that they braise the meat. If you look in the warming trays they keep it in its full of liquid. Tacquerias almost invariably grill their meat.

Burrito bowls are also bullshit imo. The advantage of a proper burrito is not having to use cutlery, and if I'm paying that much for food I better not have to assemble it myself.

And their chips and guac is a bum deal. The amount they give you is pitiful and the only option is the guac, which isn't even that good. Tacquerias typically have a complimentary all you can eat chips and salsa bar full of a variety of salsas and pickles.

I dunno man, call it what you want I guess. Every time I go to Chipotle its a tremendous disappointment and I find myself wishing I was eating something else. From what I can tell marketing and hype is all it is.

Mate, you have no idea what it means to have soupy braised meat, then. You literally have to just look at the pic I posted to see that the chicken isn't like that at all.
>The advantage of a proper burrito is not having to use cutlery,
Sure, but I'm not ordering a burrito here. The point of the bowl is that you CAN use a fork and eat with it. Otherwise I'd order a burrito.
>and if I'm paying that much for food I better not have to assemble it myself.
You don't have to assemble anything. You just eat it. You can order a wrap or two on the side for free if you want, which I do, because I enjoy making my own little burrito (takes literally 15 seconds and even parkinson's victims can do it) and then eating what's left over on its own after. It's completely optional and just there for fun. Do you get up and leave a restaurant if you order a fajita and they bring out the meat and tortilla separately?

>And their chips and guac is a bum deal.
Sure, purchasing the chips and guac isn't cheap. That's why I get it when they have chances to get it for free like every other month. I don't even order chipotle even once a month, so I pretty much get it free every time.

>Tacquerias typically have a complimentary all you can eat chips and salsa bar full of a variety of salsas and pickles.
Trattorias typically have complimentary all you can eat bread with butter and olive oil. Does this mean I can never a chain company's pizza again?

Burritos are the entire point m8, that's what I'm getting at.

The fighting in this thread is based upon the false premise that chipotle is supposed to be mexican food. You can't compare it to mexican food, that's not fair. You have to compare it to other shitty corporate-food-court chains like noodles or something. Compared to those places, it's so much better.

lol it's actually shitty food brands that have made brands so important (not talking about fast food though)
because the vast majority is such garbage, the good brands have such high value and are so expensive. For this reason, it's kinda hard to blame the average joes for not having good nutrition. Unless you're big on veggies, it's not exactly cheap to eat well, and eat easy.

>it's not exactly cheap to eat well, and eat easy.

I think that's true to an extent. Eating healthily honestly isn't that much more expensive than eating unhealthily. There's a marginal price increase, sure, but if you're going for actually eating healthily (as in, picking up healthy eating habits) as opposed to just eating healthy foods, then you'll likely be eating less than you're used to anyway. The thing about America is that portion sizes are fucking massive here. Most people I know tend to absolutely eat more in one sitting than they really probably should.

Point is, you can get away with buying healthy food for the same budget as you buy lots of cheap, unhealthy foods, and as long as you're eating a little less, going by recommended serving sizes, and tracking your nutritional intake through the day you can eat on it all for about the same amount of time.

the thing is that it takes actual effort

when confronted with expending effort, over an extended period of time, most would rather just find excuses. if you batter those experiences aside, theyll come up with new ones.

Yeah I think there was a study, where a nutritionist ate nothing but garbage junk food for a month, but with controlled portions, and he actually lost weight. As Americans we have a serious problem with impulse control when it comes to portions.
I recently got a handle on portion control (though I never had weight issues, I just wanted to be fitter and cut down a few BMI) and it's strange how good my self control is now that I've got a grip on it. It's a strong impulse to keep eating, but once you're more conscious of it, it's so much easier to control.

Losing weight is about less calories in than out whatever some people tell you ab out gimmick diets.

However what you eat has other effects, shits, long term health, general wellbeing, and what the weight lost actually consisted of (well how much was fat and how much was muscle) then changing what you eat help with these things.

I think one of the things about hyper processed carbs is that they're a little bit addicted too.
