Word to the wise, think twice about trying the new chicken carnitas burrito or taco from El Pollo Loco.

First of all, I ate 3 bites and threw it away


Second of all, those 3 bites apparently multiplied into several trips to the bathroom.

Sorry carnitas lovers. El Pollo Loco no good.  Stick to the regular tortilla and side of mac and cheese. I think I should get some help here from El Pollo Loco…like a large building size bottle of pepto bismol and some air freshener.

Third of all, it’s really gristly. I bit into a big vat of salsa-fied gristle.

Anyways, have fun tomorrow at lunch. Don’t say I didnt warn you.
