Can you believe I've never eaten at Chipotle... BUT I did see that they're unveiling a new vegan tofu burrito at their West Sac location.

 

 

 

Not sure how many locations this is at, but this is from the article:

 

 

Quote:
The so-called “sofritas” tofu item was tested in seven Chipotle restaurants in San Francisco and the Bay Area. The chain has now rolled out the offering to all locations in Northern California, including 18 shops in the Sacramento area.
 
“Sofritas” is what Chipotle is callings its protein. It is reminiscent of sofrito, which is a sauce base used in Spanish, Caribbean, Portuguese and South American cooking. The tofu is supplied by Hodo Soy of Oakland. The tofu replaces a garden blend vegetarian option that didn’t catch on with customers.
 
Made using organic and non-genetically modified tofu, the protein is braised with chipotle chilis, roasted poblano peppers

 

Fast food going vegan is a good thing for some people I think.

We have a Moes around here which is like Chipotle and they have a very good marinated tofu!

 

I don't like Chipotle. I have to get everything without cilantro and I'd swear that's where all the flavor is, because my stuff is always "meh..." huh.gif

I've never eaten there, but my boyfriend like them apparently. He hasn't eaten there since he went vegan though.

Ooh I hope it makes it's way here! I love chipotle but sometimes I wish there was a little more oomph to my burrito. It's one of the best places to eat if you have dietary restrictions. They are very upfront about what is in each ingredient. I know when I did my gluten free trial I ate there a bunch...got the rice bowl and scooped it up with corn chips. Mmmm....

I'll have to find out if any of the Chipotles around me have the tofu burrito. If not, I'll head to Moes, as I believe all Moes have the tofu. I haven't had it yet, but I plan to soon. :D

I've eaten vegan meals (sans tofu) at Chipotle many times. They're good. The tofu looks like a cool addition.
