My crazy schedule has really been getting in the way of life and blogging seems to unfortunately taken a back seat this week to making a living. I have a bunch of photos which need text and some text needing photos, so thank you loyal followers for your patience but rest assured there is content on the way.
I thought I was going to have 4 nights in Palm Springs, CA but within an hour of getting there our 4 days were filled with flights and the few hours I figured I'd spend with my computer disappeared as though David Copperfield was my best friend.
Last week I was out in Woodbury, Long Island and glanced over to see a "Burritoville" sign amongst a few fast food places. There used to be a Burritoville across the street from me in Manhattan but it's long gone however the memories of many "Route 66" burritos, (and the rest of the franchise), lives on.
There is a very strong "veggie" presence on the menu but vegan is not as well defined. I thought I could find some non pork infused beans and perhaps the rice wasn't cooked in chicken stock. I always assume it is unless someone specifically says it's not, but brown rice on a fast food menu is always a better find than white. I had guacamole, lettuce, tomato and pico de gallo available and I knew those were vegan. Tofu sour cream, soy chicken, beef and steak are listed as are soy cheese. Since many of these products contain egg or milk I opted to go with what I was reasonably sure was vegan.
|For $4.00 how can you say no? And there was a coupon for 2 for 1 I was given the next time I find myself in Woodbury, NY. So how in the world does a company sell a burrito for $2.00?|
|Is this the future of fast food? Is it like "medium" food? I guess the word being used on their website is "quick serve" which really describes it perfectly.|
All that being said, all the difficulties with the language barrier impeding clarity, this burrito was outstanding. Brown rice, guac, beans, tomato, lettuce and tofu sour cream combined in a perfect holder. Each bite was packed with flavor, yes the chorizo does stand firmly front and center, but there was a great combination of chew through the tortilla and the soft creaminess of the filling.
I did send Burritoville an email asking for clarification but so far haven't heard anything back. Perhaps if anyone has more information they might be able to get it back to me for a subsequent post. This is without a doubt the face of fast, cheap, and vegan options.
