Part Mexican part American, the burrito has become a fast food staple across the world. Filling, easy to eat (if you’re not too greedy) and packed full of flavour this is far more than a sandwich or a wrap. Here are some great spots to grab a bulging burrito.
Death By Burrito
Biting into a burrito only to not get covered in sprinklings of rice is actually quite nice. Death by Burrito fill your wrap with your chosen filling – we recommend the Baja Fish and Slaw burrito – packed full of soft white fish with creamy tangy coleslaw and fresh veg. Tangy guacamole and cooling sour cream come on the side for dipping. The burritos aren’t massive, but who needs to eat something the size of their lower arm?

Ask for a burrito and get them to fill it with the following: grilled steak, shredded lettuce, grated cheese, sour cream, salsa brava and guacamole. All burritos come served with a side of nachos. Order a corona to wash it all down with, and you’ll be living a Mexican food lovers dream.
It may be more of a lunch place than a dinner spot, but with stores across the city Poncho 8 is considered one of the most reliable and tasty spots for a burrito in London.
