Urban Burrito 02/07/09

So sometimes I just want a quick bite to eat. I'm not in the mood for fine dining. I don't have a lot of money to spend, whatever. On this particular occasion, it was just hunger and a desire not to cook. I opted for that all-American fast food, the burrito. Say what you will, but burritos have become as much a staple of the American diet as pizza, hamburgers, or a ham & cheese omelet.

Anyways, Urban Burrito is on the second floor of this shopping pavilion over on Merrimon Ave. It's got kind of subdued lighting. I suppose you could take a date there if it was a casual type 3rd or 4th date. The thing is, the food is phenomenal. They have a great selection of fresh items for your burrito: meats, veggies, sour cream, pico de gallo, guacamole, etc. They also have a salsa bar that features some interesting choices like pineapple salsa. My personal preference is salsa verde.

I got the chipotle chicken burrito on a whole wheat tortilla with guacamole, black beans & lettuce. I'd eat it again and again if I'd bought five or six of them, but alas, I only bought one.
