I AM NOT A VEGETARIAN

Posted in Ethos by burritowizard on January 30, 2009

But I don’t favor meat in Mexican style food.  Also, I want to focus on a specific type of burrito for discussion and reviews: the basic vegetarian ingredients..  I’m not against reviewing a burrito with lard in the beans or chicken stock in the rice, but I will point out whether I know or suspect that a burrito is NOT 100% vegetarian.

ORIGIN

Posted in Ethos by burritowizard on January 30, 2009

My Burrito Quest began in Washington DC at the now legendary Burrito Brothers in Georgetown 1992.  This was the first time I heard the term “California Style Burrito”.  Burrito Brothers quickly became a phenomenon and my teenage office.  Locations readily opened all over town… The franchises’ decline began when the growing chain: Chipotle, originally from Denver, CO and partly owned by McDonalds, opened in 1999.  Slowly Burrito Brothers closed throughout the city.  Other chain burrito joints opened…  Today there are only 3 Burrito Brothers locations remaining (that I know about).  Capitol Hill (which has a different recipe), Union Station food court (original recipe) and Falls Church, VA (which I have never been to).  In 2000 I moved to Los Angeles, CA where I found many other burritophiles… It seems that burritos are to the west coast what pizza is to the east.
