Tag Archives: edamame beans


If you know me, you know that I am not a big fan of beans- and that is an understatement. Thus I tend to avoid foods such as chili and burritos, in that beans are a major component. Last time I got lucky when best burritos in the city offered the option of edamame beans. This time I was not so lucky.

Fat Bastard burrito- best late night burrito (1)

Fat Bastard Burrito was voted best late night burrito and in keeping with our late night Friday foodings it was the perfect choice: it was a 15 minute walk away from our current place (we are moving next week). I went there with the mindset that I would just order it without the beans (yes, I can hear you burrito enthusiasts gasping at the horror). The menu was daunting, so many choices! I decided on the baja chipotle chicken, partly because it was fun to say. Brent had the less-fun-to-say buffalo chicken. As i watched them prepare his burrito (he had ordered the works) I noticed that the beans were in a paste form. Somehow this seemed less gross to me and I found myself also getting the works. This included but was not limited to lettuce and chives. I was a little bit worried to say the least.

One bite and I was hooked. The beans and chives were buried deep inside, mixed with all the other toppings in one giant delicious mess. And I mean giant. I ordered the smallest size (tiny) and it was still a behemoth of a burrito. As is the norm, mine was the better choice as it had a spicy kick to it thanks to the chipotle sauce.

You can’t eat a burrito without drinking Jarrito. This time we had lime and it further cemented my new-found love affair with the soda. I have yet to meet a flavour I did not like, partly because I refuse to try the pineapple flavour and as far as I am concerned it does not exist.

Burrito- Round 2

You know what else I hate? Beans. When we went Chino Locos for the best burrito in the city I had to settle for edamame beans. This year we went to Mucho Burrito on Ryan’s recommendation for an ungodly hot burrito with ghost chilis in it. Well in Brent’s, not mine. I was really looking forward to seeing him sweat and cry. Alas, they no longer had it, it was a limited time only burrito. We had to settle for regular burritos. Granted, the hot sauce was still pretty damn hot.



What was good about Mucho Burrito (aside from the fact that the burritos were delicious) was that there was the option for no beans! They ask if you even want any beans or sour cream in your burrito! So what I ended up with was just the good stuff: rice, marinated steak and grilled veggies (as in mostly just green peppers, a few onions snuck in though) doused with hot sauce! Good times. In addition they have various sizes.
