Airport eating: Charlotte

I’m back from Georgia! (You didn’t know I was away?) I changed flights in Charlotte (CLT) and had a plastic-free meal in the airport. Thought I had better record this miracle.

Since I knew I was in store for a meat-heavy weekend (hi Mom!) I looked for a Mexican-ish meal in the airport, since that’s been better luck for vegetarian fare. Stopped by Salsarita’s, a Charlotte-based and South-heavy Mexicanesque chain.

I asked for a vegetarian burrito — ordered “for here” — which came wrapped in foil, nested in deli paper in a paper french-fry-style basket. If you’re worried the paper products are plastic coated (they may be) I bet you could ask for your burrito as-is.

Alas, looking at “to go” orders and fountain drinks, you get several kinds of plastic, so be careful.
