Soon You'll Be Able to Get Tofu Burritos at Chipotle

Posted By on Tue, Jan 29, 2013 at 11:00 AM

In what we can only assume is a bid to take a bigger share of the fast-casual dining market, Chipotle has announced a tentative new vegetarian entree option. Beginning February 12, the chain will begin testing tofu "sofritas" burritos in seven of its Bay Area restaurants. The organic, GMO-free tofu will come from Oakland's Hodo Soy Beanery and will be shredded and braised with chipotles, roasted poblanos and other spices for a filling the fast-casual chain hopes will appeal to both vegetarians and vegans. Sofritas will be available in burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salads.

Find it at the following Chipotle locations: 525 Market, 121 Fourth St., and 126 New Montgomery in San Francisco; 2019 Chess Drive and 251 East 3rd Ave. in San Mateo; 180 El Camino Real in Palo Alto; and 135 El Camino Real in Millbrae.

Or, don't find it and head to your corner taqueria for a Mexican fix instead, because mass-market "Mission-style" burritos are all well and good for markets without the real deal ... but we're certainly not lacking better options.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
