Get your Grub ON...Genetically gifted with a refined palate, a masterful artist and craftier of gastronomical delights...Chinito. Armed with a culinary education and decades of restauranting experience he teases patrons with voluptuous burritos stuffed with carefully crafted ingredients and fresh tacos filled with carnitas, asada or a protein of your choosing. His mis en place has never come into contact with a freezer or a microwave and his produce and meat are thoughtfully purchased from the market daily. Methodical, bordering on genius, he does not purchase grocery items that he would not be proud to serve to his family. This Chinito is no Cheapito. As I took my first bite of the quesadilla, I accidentally shouted way too loudly, "Homie, don't PLAY!!"Stop, Drop and Roll to Git your Glueteal Region Downtown to Flava Town!
Chinito's Burritos website advertises "Fast, Fresh, Frugal," but they left off "Friendly" and maybe "Fanatical." In this little corner restaurant, Chef Jin has embodied a passion for food from which high-end restaurants could take a lesson. The "Chinitos experience" goes kinda like this: Fresh ingredients are bought every day from the market down the road, you order what you like, your order is made fresh and in front of you, and all the while Chef Jin is telling you about why he loves what he does. It doesn't get much better than that! Tasty food on a college student's budget.You need to check this place out... and then check it out again!
