I thought I was losing my mind after a recent visit to the nearby Chipotle, but my questions were answered last night. First, a little background. I had a delicious burrito from Chipotle on Monday evening, as I normally do when Kim is out of town for work. Even though I ate the entire thing, I noticed that the rice was a little different than normal. I actually noticed this a week prior, but I just figured it was a one time deal. In both visits, the rice was a darker color than normal, and had a slight crunch to it, almost like a brown rice.
Back to last night, we participated in the Light The Night walk benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Before the actual walk, we were treated to various food items from some of the sponsors, one of which was Chipotle. I grabbed a burrito from the booth and dug right in. To my surprise, the rice was back to the normal white color and tasted just like I always remembered it. I wonder what is going on with the Chiptole on Alameda Ave.
