One of my friends works at Chipotle, so I have been going more often
recently, because she gives me buy one get one coupons! I love the
chicken salad with brown rice, veggies, sour cream, cheese, salsa, and
guacamole- the portions are huge in my opinion, and are so filling.
Since the guacamole is extra, I don't always get it. If I want a treat I
will get their sweet tea, because it is surprisingly delicious, and as a
Southern sweet tea enthusiast I can attest that it is much better than
what most restaurants serve!
So this doesn't exactly count, but my favorite local place for beverages
is called Delish Bubble Tea. It's not a chain store, so the only
location is right by our house, and I absolutely love their drinks!
Before I moved to where I live now, I had never tried bubble (boba) tea;
now it's by far one of my all-time favorite treats. They have such a
wide variety of handmade drinks, such as smoothies, slushes, and teas,
as well as add-ins like tapioca, popping boba, and "jellies".
I love family owned businesses, and how the owner always recognizes me
when I walk in. The atmosphere overall is great!
I guess I'm kind of a Southern girl, so I'd probably have to say that I
prefer tea, especially if it's iced and very sweet. Not only is it often
more refreshing to drink, but it doesn't leave you feeling buzzed only
to have a caffeine crash later on. That's not to say that I don't like
coffee too, though; I drink it at least every other day just because the
taste is pretty good, and it is helpful in keeping me awake during
class. Recently, since it's colder, I've taken to drinking hot
Sleepytime tea nightly to help me relax before bedtime. It is very good
for you because it's all natural, and I only add a little bit of honey
to it for sweetness. Overall, I think that both are good, but I do
slightly prefer tea.
