Health Freak: Laughing Planet Cafe

Grilled Chicken Burrito on a Whole Wheat Tortilla, $5.95

When I first stepped foot in this cafe about two years ago, I was very much against flavorless foods that were overly healthy—I must have gotten some vegged out meal on accident. I refused to go back and dreaded the sight of their “keep Portland weird” restaurants. This was all until my roommate came home six months ago, with a burrito that smelled so delicious; I had to curse my own name and go back again and again.

Laughing Planet’s grilled chicken burrito is rolled up with pinto beans, organic brown rice, melted Tillamook pepper jack cheese, pico de gallo, grilled chicken and a smokey, hot salsa on the side. For an added indulgence, make it a deluxe for $2.25 with guacamole and sour cream.

This burrito will treat you right, fill you up beyond belief and you can feel really good about doing so—for you and the all natural chicken! Laughing Planet is a leader in sustainable restaurants—using biodegradable “to-go” silver wear, composting and not packing your food in twenty layers of bags and boxes. Go Laughing Planet! Plus, to my dismay, their food will kick your tastes buds ass (as long as you stay away from the Che Guevara; that one is still a bit bland).
