may have noticed that London is knee deep in burritos this week. It’s all to do with the 14,000 burritos given away FREE by Chipotle at a rate of 2000 per day for 7 days! Well we went along to their branch on Upper Street to meet the team and find out a bit more on what Chipotle are all about.

Here’s an interesting fact, in the US of A there are over 1,650 Chipotles with only 6 here in the UK. What also may surprise you is how much love goes into their food, they are passionate people. Your time at the counter might be under 60 seconds but theres a lot more that goes on behind scenes. Check this nice little video…


Their meat is the bomb, free range pork, RSPCA Freedom Food chicken and Farm Assured Beef. There’s no microwaves or freezers and they prepare virtually everything on site, from the guacamole to marinating the meat. In the kitchen the real work begins, measuring out the sauce, butchering the meat, drying the beans and mashing 180 avocados to make the guacamole, which gets done three times a day. A big task, and as you can see the main man Everton there holds the tool to make that happen…’the industrial avocado masher’.

For a fast food chain, you can certainly feel the love and Chipotle run a damn tight ship, who’s for a burrito then?
