My First Time at Chipotle Mexican Grill

Barbacoa Salad

Man, this Chipotle chain is everywhere these days, eh? I'd always passed by them before and figured that with a name like that, it'd hopefully be a more honest attempt toward proper Mexican food.

It turned out that I was totally wrong. The Tabasco bottles should have been the first clue. It was basically just a burrito bar (apparently inspired by the Mission District, if I read it correctly), but by leveraging the same ingredients they could present it differently such as in a bowl or salad form if you so desired.

Granted I liked the generous scoop of guacamole that they gave, but otherwise this "salad" that I got was just an excessive heap of calories and sodium. We should have gone to find some proper tacos instead.
