Anyone recall the name of the burrito place that was featured as unhealthy in a Toronto Star article in the last few weeks (or months)?

A friend told me about this and I was wondering which burrito place it mentioned... (hope this post is in the right place---it is specific to Toronto?)

    1. In all fairness is a steak burrito EVER healthy, though

        Actually, I've since heard the burrito featured was actually a veggie burrito and someone had it for their "Friday dinner treat" or something like that. So I'm still wondering which burrito place it was...

          OH ... you're talking about the saag paneer roti. Here's the article:

          I was pretty stunned by the amount of calories and fat. It looks massive in the pic.

            She said it was a burrito but I'll ask her if this was it... I don't like that Indian cheese so probably not something I'd go for. Yes, it looks enormous.

              When I used to live out in that area, this used to be my usual "to hell with healthy" comfort food meal. I still get cravings but since they've changed their hours to weekdays only, I never have the opportunity to hook myself up with some gut-busting roti.

              Steak can often be the lowest-fat, lowest calorie option on a menu. I suspect the culprits here are the too-large size, cheese, guacamole, and sauce. It isn't the burrito's fault. It's the tricked-out-food trend's fault.

                Yes, burritos don't kill, people do. (Note good-natured sarcasm here).

                  Well, in the sense that people make infant-sized burritos. :)

                    better than burrito-sized infants, i'd venture
