Remember this post when I said that I was going to visit Chipotle for a free burrito? Well, I never got to use the very stylish coupon, because it expired before I could make it over to their Brighton location.
However, I did end up getting a free burrito from them. Chipotle opened yet another restaurant, but this one is in Quincy on Newport Avenue. Right across from Stop & Shop. On June 5th, they gave out free burritos all day, so G and I went and we each got one.
Even though it was cloudy and a bit drizzly, there was a line of people out the door. The line moved very quickly though and the employees were friendly and kept everything running extremely smoothly. I was impressed. They also gave out free drinks. No pressure to buy anything else.
They had a ton of people working there and they seemed to be enjoying themselves. They had the burrito making down to a science, with each person responsible for a different ingredient and they just moved it down the line. I had a chicken burrito and it was really good. They are so big, but I ate the whole thing. I had it for a late lunch and didn't need dinner, it was so filling.
I noticed a few days ago when I was at South Shore Plaza that there is a Chipotle there also. They are really moving into Massachusetts.
And on a sort of related note, G showed me this really interesting food article. Raul and Marina Montaño are a couple from Douglas, Arizona who make cinnamon-scented wafer cookies that are shaped like tacos called dichos. Dichos contain a Mexican saying written on a slip of paper, like a fortune cookie. One side is in English and the other is in Spanish. Dichos are available online on their website.
These dichos sound and look really good! I hope I get to try them soon. Now this is just me wishing and speculating wildly, but wouldn't it be cool if Chipotle placed a huge order for dichos and started giving them out free in all their restaurants with each order? Just a thought...
