Boloco for Lunch: A Review

I work in an area that is over populated with choices to eat lunch. Although I typically choose to go over to the grocery store to grab something something fresh and cheap. So when Boloco contacted me to try some of their yummy burritos... I was up for the challenge.

First off, I was surprised that the burritos were far from just Mexican food. They offer everything from Buffalo, Thai, Cajun, Memphis BBQ to Caesar, Mediterranean and Tikka Masala.

Next, I was pleasantly surprised at how inexpensive it is for the amount of food you get. The photo above is the "Original" size. It is the size of my forearm and wayyy too much food for me. I could only eat about half. I would definitely recommend getting the small size.

I loved the fresh ingredients... and the fact that I could choose any protein I wanted: chicken, steak, pork or tofu. I have only tried the Nasoya tofu on all of my burritos so far... and it has been so delicious. I am not a typically huge fan of tofu, but mixed in with Bolocos great flavors, I love it.

I am now a fan and have been back for lunch many times over... I have had the Buffalo, Tikka Masala, Cajun and Mediterranean burritos so far. My favorite this far is the Cajun flavor.

The major drawback with these burritos are that they can be high in calories, saturated fat and sodium. My first burrito I ate was the Buffalo original size. This had 1032 calories, 18 grams saturated fat and 1084mg of sodium!

Just be a bit more careful than me when ordering and you can get a much healthier option... a small Tikka Masala wheat burrito with Nasoya tofu is only 368 calories, 1.5 grams saturated far and 382mg of sodium. And it is so filling and delicious.

Speaking of the Nasoya- check their website out for some amazing recipes. My favorite is the Crispy Tofu Taco with Creamy Lime Drizzle... sooo delicious! There are even some great kid friendly recipes that are great for back to school lunches. The Cinnamon Sugar Crisps are a huge hit here.

This brings me to a little giveaway. I have a $10 Boloco gift card and Nasoya coupons to share with you. Ever since Google reader died, my readership has dropped away to nothing... so I have jumped on board the Facebook fanpage in an effort to get my readers back. Please go "Like" my Facebook page
