Big Fat Burrito - short review

xtal | Nov 13, 2007 08:44 PM

I stopped by Big Fat Burrito this afternoon for lunch.

A bit of background: I've been to BFB a few times, and have thought their offerings to be fairly good.

The restaurant wasn't very busy, as it was mid-afternoon when I was there. I ordered a pulled pork burrito, with all the toppings, a spice level of medium, and opted to eat-in.

The burrito seemed to be well wrapped initially, so I dug in. I was somewhat disappointed, as the pulled pork was rather tasteless. No requisite smokiness or BBQ flavour. The fresh salsa that they used was fine, but there was so much liquid (from the tomatoes, I suspect) that the flour tortilla disintegrated within minutes. Also, the requested heat didn't show up until the last few bites.

So, ultimately filling and inexpensive, but quite boring. I wish I had stuck with the yam burrito.

I'm in no rush to go back.
