Something New Every Day

A record of doing a new thing every day in 2011

Went to a US Chipotle (31/365) Monday January 31, 2011

As you may know I’m a big fan of Chipotle, and am a regular in what I think is the only one in the UK on Charing Cross Road, London. However I’d never been to one in the US, something I rectified tonight.

We’d been to the cinema to see Green Hornet 3D on the IMAX in Lincoln Square Cinema in Bellevue and wanted something tasty and quick to eat - so Chipotle was the perfect choice. It was very similar to the UK version, except for a couple of minor differences:

  • The menu boards showed the calories (not too bad!)
  • They had a kids menu, and drinks were also more obviously placed
  • The food was just about identical. The hot salsa didn’t seem quite as hot as at home, although that could well have just been my expectations after a week of “5-star spicy” food that isn’t very hot at all.
