Good luck with that. If you find anything, let me know. I find the easiest way to fix my burrito cravings is just to make them myself. Here's a guide to obtaining Mexican food/ingredients in Munich.

How about that place at Rosenheimer Platz; does it still exist? They served Tex Mex fast-food style. Or was it turned into another Kebab shop, come to think of it?

There is a lady selling burritos and tacos in front of the Augsburg Metro market every Saturday. She said she was from New Mexico and the beef burrito I had was really good and the salsa was fantastic.

I don't know if anybody still needs this, but there is a kick ass burrito place outside of the hauptbahnhoff called taco libre. it is the closest to chipotle i think were gonna find here. its not the same, but for me its good enough. The burritos are huge just like chipotle, they have steak and chicken. the steak is okay, but dont expect chipotle quality. they have black and pinto beans rice cheese pico and guac. I do miss the chipotle spicy corn, but their guacamole more than makes up for it, it is positively delicious!

Sure-- but Chipotle is a garbage burrito. So that's not exactly a ringing endorsement...

A brand new burrito place is opening up (I think tomorrow!) on the corner of Schellingstaße and Augustenstraße in Maxvorstadt. Last year the location was a bagel shop (and I was very happy). Later it became a kebab shop... because the area needed more of those (I was crushed). Now it will be a Mexican restaurant. Let's hope they have better luck than the previous tenants! If not, I'm sure it will be a bubble tea shop next :/

 

I'll let yall know how it is.

And your experience and qualification as a restaurant reviewer is... what exactly? Chipotle consistently ranks highly; TripAdvisor is chock full of unpaid, non-shill reviews averaging 4-4½/5. As a corporation, Chipotle is also into responsibility more so than Ben & Jerry's, buying no pork from factory farms and avoiding chicken and beef treated with hormones and antibiotics wherever possible (difficult in the US).

 

Pajero.

 

woof.

Oh not much.

 

Just a former San Francisco resident who returned to that city a few years after moving away with an assignment to find the best burritos the city had to offer-- and in doing so spent a little time with the man behind burritoeater.com (a guy who has reviewed 944 burritos on a 6-part, 10-point scale at all ~150 taquerias in the city, dating back to 2003).

 

Incidentally, this is what the burritoeater.com proprietor has to say about Chipotle (good corporate responsibility aside), as posted on his website:

 

"On the other hand...after eating a number of the things over the years, we're of the resolute opinion that, despite consistently having a few fine ingredients in its arsenal, Chipotle (New York Stock Exchange symbol: CMG) couldn't properly construct a burrito if its investors' lives depended on it. (Perhaps you like skimpily foiled, softball-shaped burritos stuffed full of al dente cilantro-lime rice?) And since there's virtually zero variation from each Chipotle shop to the next, we'd rather focus our burrito-eating time and energy on the rest of San Francisco's cockeyed caravan of taquerias, not the nearly dozen Chipotle locations the Colorado-based company has carpet-bombed around town. When in Shanghai, do San Francisco's Chipotle loyalists eat at Panda Express?"

 

So yeah, I think I have a little experience with i) burritos, and ii) writing about them for the general public, to comment. I may have a mission-burrito bias-- as opposed to other styles of burrito-- but since Chipotle has stated that their burrito is inspired by a mission-style burrito... I think my bias in that direction is just fine.

Oh, you're famous on the Internet. Why didn't you say? I'm also Internet-famous for food, except USA Today paid me to find the best French fries in the entire US and not just in one town.

 

If you're going to claim some sort of expertise, you might want to mention (and maybe even link to) it in your post. As I read it, you're some anti-globalisation-screaming schmuck who has a thing against a successful business. Here in Germany we'd fucking kill for a Taco Bell, let alone a Chipotle (and I'd expect either here in ausländerreich-Munich to light their proverbial cigars with €100 notes).

 

Your poorly written out-of-hand dismissal read like so many of the Indians slagging each others' restaurants off in the reviews section.

 

woof.

I think the OP wanted to know where the find a good burrito in Munich, not that you have a friend who has sampled ever one of San Francisco's 150 odd burrito retailers. Well I've eaten in at least 40 Indian restaurants in Munich, and 500+ in India. Cool me eh?

 

And with the appallingly low standard of Mexican food here, a taco bell would be very welcome. Can't comment on chipotle. so won't.

Huh?

 

Isn't this a thread about take-out burritos?

 

All I did was post an opinion about how good (or not) a particular type of burrito was. And then you had to come on this thread and proclaim that my opinion was worthless-- presumably because it doesn't align with yours-- unless I could back it up with experience. So I posted my experience. And that experience isn't enough to match your bar of excellence-- nor your experience with fries (which is relevant why?).

 

And from that you draw that I'm i) a schmuck, who is ii) anti-globalization, iii) screams, and is iv) anti-business.

 

In fact, I'm none of those things except, perhaps, a schmuck. That's up to you and everyone else to decide.

 

I'm sorry for whatever terrible thing happened to you today/in life. And for not having exactly the same taste in food.

If you took the time to read the thread, all I did was mention that I thought Chipotle was not a good burrito. Simple statement of opinion. Then BD cited the oft-forgotten rule here that in order for someone to post their opinion of food said person must list his personal and professional experience on the topic. Which I did.

 

I still stand by my original statement of opinion: Chipotle isn't good. So something comparable also isn't good.

In a world of the blind, a man who can see is a god.

 

It appears you believe we should starve rather than eat anywhere that doesn't meet with your personal approval, never mind what hundreds of others have opined. So if any of us wants a burrito, we have to fuck off to Juarez. Gotcha.

 

woof.
