Great location and reasonably priced food. Chipotle has just launched a vegan burrito with features tofu instead of meat. I have to admit as a vegan I wasn't too much of a fan of this, I much prefer the roasted veggies instead, a lot more crunch and texture. 


Major downside of now offering a vegan option was that they didn't have vegan cheese or vegan sour cream - feel like they're missing a trick there. Would definitely enhance the overall product!

As always, I am on a daily mission to eat better so I was thrilled to see that one of my favourite lunch spots would now be offering a vegan alternative!I do not frequently eat tofu and it’s not in my normal diet but after trying the vegan burrito from Chipotle, I will be getting it every time I go from now on! I also managed to try some of the soft tacos which are much easier to eat but just as delicious.I didn’t overly notice a big difference between having a meat option and a vegan option so I was really happy with the overall quality of the new dish!The only downside was there was no vegan cheese on offer!

I was invited to try Chipolte's new vegan braised tofu 'sofritas' and was super excited. As a vegetarian, I have been limited to rice and beans fillings in past visits, and I have to say, this new filling really made a difference to me. It was very flavourful and added a lot of the flavour to the tacos as a whole! I did feel like a little more filling would have nice, as it was quite a thin layer. However, I LOVE that there's a vegan option and I'm super happy with the outcome. Definitely try it out! <3

Went to Chipotle last week, for their 'Vegan Boost' launch. My first time visiting, and was really impressed. The sofrita was really tasty. I opted for the taco option, it was a little messy to eat in the soft taco's but yummy - so much guac! To go with it, we had frozen margarita's, which were so refreshing. Now that Chipotle is on my radar, I will definitely be back. Think next time will give the bowl a go, they looked so good.

I enjoy a Chipotle as much as the next person (and from reading the other reviews that means I like it a lot) so when I was invited to the launch of the new vegan offering I was excited to take my lactose-intolerant other half. Imagine the disappointment when we finally made it to the front of the queue (it was a busy evening and there probably could have been more staff) to find that the cheese wasn't vegan/ lactose-free.  As delicious as the tofu was (and generally I find tofu quite hit and miss) it seemed such a shame that vegans or lactose-free diners were having the check that every aspect of what they put onto their plate/ wrap/ bowl was okay for them to eat? Even some of the sauces weren't suitable for vegans. In my mind if you're shouting about having a vegan offering then make sure all the bells and whistles are vegan as well.

We got to try the new sofrita offering at Chipotle last week and it was a pleasant surprise!  Historically, the veggie options at Chipotle haven't been that inspiring but this new tofu offering changes that.  The rice bowl was fab, flavoursome and filling.  The margaritas weren't too bad either!  The service isn't as slick as in the US stores, but a nice option for a quick meal that's a bit ore than just fast food.

Chipotle is essentially a fast-food Mexican restaurant that operates similar to Subway, where you pick your meal and fillings whilst it's prepared in front of you. I recently tried a few of their new vegan dishes, including their 'Vegan Boost' sofritas with braised tofu. It's awesome that a chain like Chipotle now offer a dedicated vegan option and clearly list all allergens so that you can build your own vegan-friendly dish, however the braised tofu wasn't to my taste. The veggie filling was far tastier and was delicious in their tacos topped with guacamole! It's definitely a great place to grab a quick bite if you're craving Mexican food whilst in Soho.

Super busy at lunch but the line moves lighting fast. Being from the states I'm def a Chipotle fan and can use a bowl with guac and a warm tortilla on the side any day. Only giving 4 stars because the bowls from similar joints nearby (like Chilango) is bolder, spicier, can mix up shrimp and meat, and just tends to taste better than what I can get here.

I went to the Vegan Sofritas launch at Chipotle last night and boy can do they do vegan food right. I am not a vegan (sorry I enjoy cheese too much) and the tofu in the mix was cooked just right as sometimes when overcooked it can become chewy and had it so much flavour. It was a tangy, tomatoey deliciousness. The frozen margaritas were yummy as well, sour and salty. The music played in the launch was also on point, my only fault if I was being picky is that there was a lot of rubbish and debris left on tables because it was busy, but I get that. Next time I am at Chipotle though I will be getting the vegan bowl. (But I’m sorry I will have to add cheese!)

These guys know how to throw a party! I attended for the vegan launch night of the ‘sofritas’ option coming to UK branches of Chipotle! Margheritas, beer and their wonderful food (with the best guacamole in town!!!!)

The new sofritas option is shredded and braised tofu in place of their typical meat options. It is delicious and a real hit in the US so it was about time the UK got some of the action with such a fast-growing vegan scene this year!

Make sure when ordering you check what isn’t vegan so you don’t accidentally ruin your vegan fix - for example one of their chilli sauces isn’t vegan and this isn’t clear when ordering without asking or checking online. The flour tortillas are though and most other items so fill yourselves up!

The Wardour Street branch is a great little spot for lunch or a bit post-work / pre-drinks with quite a few tables dotted about. Staff are really friendly so you’re sure to walk away with good vibes!

The only down side is their use of plastic cutlery and plastic straws - come on guys! Get with the times and say no to plastic!
