Making Burritos with Barburrito

Making Burritos with Barburrito

Burritos are right now, my all time favourite food. I don’t even know how I got into them but now there’s no looking back for me. They’re my convenience food of choice. It’s the food I grab on the go when I’m in town and it’s what I make at home on a fairly regular basis, both in naked and wrapped formats.

I just love Mexican food, OK? In fact, Mexican is my speciality dish when it comes to cooking for dates as it’s the meal you can make where it looks like you’ve made a massive effort when actually you’ve just put everything into dishes. Sneaky.

Anyway, I was invited down to Barburrito to go make my own burrito and let’s face it, this is my dream. We had the opportunity to try everything that could possibly go into a burrito as they make everything fresh and being able to try everything makes me realise that I should probably diversify my order every once in a while instead of sticking with the flavour sensation that I already know and love.

We started off with some burrito folding practice, and I didn’t think my efforts were too shabby. The trick is making sure that when you fold it over, you have a bit of an overlap so nothing spills out. For me, whilst it may sound like such a little thing, it’s really handy as I cook Mexican food for myself all the time at home since it’s very much Slimming World friendly. What I really like about Barburrito is that their menu is very diverse so will cover off all the dietary requirements you could possibly think of without anyone being left feeling hard done by.

When it came to fillings, I went for the pulled beef after trying it in the tasting session and realising it’s my new favourite filling. I was tempted by the steak as that’s also cooked fresh and is delicious, but I’m still feeling slow cooked, falling apart meat. I also went for spicy Mexican rice, mild salsa, an extra spoonful of guacamole (insert heart eye emoji here), cheese, sour cream, peppers and lettuce. It was mighty. But that’s the thing about this restaurant, it’s so cheap to get a really substantial meal on the go – unlike a lot of fast food places which cost the same for processed crap. Having seen behind the scenes of  the restaurant, it reassures me that everything in Barburrito is very fresh.

After we’d made our burritos, we were sent on our way with a load of chips and dips as well and I wa pretty damn content. My favourite food and enough chips and dip to have the following day too – what more does a gal need? I’m already a loyal customer of Barburrito and will recommend them to anyone, but if you haven’t been before, definitely give it a try.

  1. I honestly want to learn how to successfully fold a burrito or fajita because it always ends up in disaster. I just don't have the skills of the professionals haha! But basically yes I love a good burrito and how exciting there is ever a burrito emoji 🌯

  2. mmmm I love a good burrito but I'm not good at wrapping them up - I usually end up with just a messy but tasty pile of stuff!

  3. Oh all I want now is a burrito, I haven't had one in forever! And folding burritos is something I have always failed at, definitely need to learn how to ha
