Review: Red Burrito (Robson)

by gigi on June 23, 2009

Jenkins and I were wandering the streets of downtown one sunny weekend day and realized that it was already two o’clock in the afternoon and we hadn’t had lunch yet. It must have been the hot weather because despite the late hour, we were not very hungry. We happened to be near Red Burrito at the time and since I had never been there, I decided that that was where we were going to eat lunch.

Red Burrito specializes in Mexican fast food, such as tacos, tamales, and of course, their signature dish, the red burrito. I decided to go for the burrito bowl, which seemed to be pretty popular with quite a few people that I know. It came with beans, rice, and beef as a base and I added salsa, letuce, corn, lime juice, and sour cream. I liked the burrito bowl because it was a lot less messy than a burrito or taco.

The flavours melded quite well together and the extras I added were all very fresh. Because all the items in the bowl were layered on top of one another, you had to make sure to mix everything well in order to taste all the flavours. The burrito bowl looked a bit small at first glance but was actually quite filling and I was not able to finish it.

Jenkins decided to go for the red burrito with chicken. He chose to add the same additional toppings as mine so he did not have to make too many decisions. :) If you’re looking to get full, the red burrito is probably a better option than the burrito bowl because it seemed to have quite a bit more to it for basically the same price.

Jenkins found his chicken burrito to be on the bland side though so he added some hot sauce to spice up the flavour.

Red Burrito was better than I expected and is a pretty good place to go especially if you’re in a rush. I wasn’t a huge fan of the beans in my burrito bowl though so the next time around, I’ll opt out of the beans and maybe ask for more rice.
