Bar Burrito - Vegan Options

I know I know: what's with more fast food? The fact is many fast food chains offer nothing plant-based and sometimes, you just need a quick bite and a protein bar won't do. Bar Burrito solves the problem.

There are quite a few BBs around but we tried this is a new one at Mt Lehman Crossing in Abbotsford which is essentially a fast food nest. This strip mall tells me that we may not be cooking much at home any more as a society and we are probably getting fatter by the day. but at least Bar Burrito and Pita Pit of the many chains represented here,  can offer something plant-based.
They have 3 non-animal proteins that can be used interchangeably and we chose to order 3 tacos with their Veggie Ground. You order and modify your items just like you would at subway. Choose your protein, vegetables, toppings and sauces. We actually ordered the tacos last and I was trying to work my way through the sauces (an allergy chart on their website tells you what items are plant based) and might have ended up with a spicy barbeque sauce here which is just a weird direction to go. They still ended up tasty with some heat, crunchy veggies and not terrible tortillas.
The second protein is falafel and I am going to give them credit for serving a decent amount of good falafel on this bowl. Badly done falafel can be dry but this was not the case here. On a bed of brown rice and lots of miscellaneous veggies, this was a decent plant-based meal.
Finally, we ordered BBs namesake with their third protein source black and pinto beans.  Nothing surprising here, brown rice, lots of veggies and beans and some other more appropriate sauce than I chose for the tacos (they have a couple of spicy sauces that are plant based). Just a decently substantial burrito but still healthy and very tasty.
So Bar Burrito is just a regular fast food place with some room to sit down and eat and really helpful staff (I think that they learned a bit about plant-based eating). You have to be aware of which sauces have dairy products and such but you can eat well here without having to go to McDonalds or Popeyes. BTW, if you are still eating animal products, you should watch Pigignorant which is now available on Amazon Prime. You need to know how your bacon gets to your plate.
