Hmmm.... no actual mention of Chipotle in the actual article.

Going to take a wild guess that the headline writers wanted to grab some attention there.

Are there people who actually don't know this?

I don't get why people praise Chipotle so much.  It isn't that great.

In a country where places like Olive Garden and Red Lobster still exist, I think it's evident the bar isn't set too high

I don't praise it that much, it just really hits the spot sometimes. I'd still prefer authentic stuff any day of the week.

Chipotle, which uses a version of the recipe in its restaurants, describes it as "spicy, shredded beef, slowly braised for hours in a blend of chipotle pepper adobo, cumin, cloves, garlic and oregano until tender and moist."

Okay, so I missed that. But there's no implication that their version uses the flavor things that the article is talking about, so it's kind of irrelevant.

There's a shortage of good Mexican around here.  One thing I miss Huntsville for, because I farking loved Sandoval's.  There's actually a small national chain of Tex-Mex that has a store here called Abuelos.  By far the best Mexican food chain I've found.

Even when I was living and working in an area with plenty of authentic, good Mexican food to be had (Yolo County, CA), I still enjoyed Chipotle for what it was.  Filling, and pretty tasty in its own, Americanized way.

Chipotle is terrible.

KFC, on the other hand...one of the finest foodstuffs on earth is a KFC original recipe leg or thigh eaten cold after it's spent a night in the fridge.

I had a friend in college who used to drag to me to KFC at every opportunity.  No idea why he liked that place so much.  The food was salty and greasy and fatty and gross.  I have a hard time believing time or cold would improve it.

I do love me some homemade fried chicken.  But, the crap sold by fast food restaurants?  Yuck.

My issue with Chipotle is the price. I could get a comparable and much better tasting burrito from the actual Mexican joint across the street for half what Chipotle charges.

True, but most Chipotle locations are not near corner actual Mexican joints.

/ One Chipotle and about 20 actual Mexican joints within a mile or two of my place
// Yes, I appreciate it

I was really baked one night and I broke out a leftover KFC chicken breast- attacked it cold. I actually found myself growling like an animal as I ate it.

Yup.

One of the things I miss most about California is good Mexican food.  Of course, you'd have to go into an actual Mexican neighborhood to get it, usually...but, at least it was available.  And delicious.

I am not praising KfarkFC in general is every bit as disgusting as any other fast-food option.

I am praising a very specific kind of KFC, in a very specific set of circumstances. The kind, in this case, is a drumstick or a thigh, coated in original-flavored breading. The set of circumstances is the morning or afternoon after which that drumstick or thigh has spent the entire night in the refrigerator. Much as the wafer of bread is converted into the literal Body of Christ during the Catholic Eucharist, so to does the KFC piece undergo a mystical, perhaps magical transformation during the overnight period. What you consume the following day is no longer KFC. It is something else entirely, something wonderful.

I think it's the same principle that make leftover turkey sammiches taste 10x better than the original meal. Maybe it's a poultry thing?

My guess it is because they were one of, if not the first big chain to jump onto the fresh and natural train.  They have made a big deal about using hormone-free meat for a long time...it is good business sense to be ahead of the curve...

If you're going to a Chipotle or Taco Bell, the last thing you're probably concerned about it nutrition.

As for ease of location, there's a reason I mentioned why I mentioned those four locations,   Think about it for a moment.

The fact that a lot of times, the "authentic" Mexican joints are authentically shiatty.

It also works for tomato sauce.
 
2013-03-17 06:40:50 PM
So? This is really just anti-intellectualism. For example, xanthan gum makes for better, more flavorful sauces than flour because you can use a tiny fraction as much and still get the same stabilization. Just because scientists discovered seething doesn't automatically make it evil.
