My constant search for fine Mexican food has found many treats for my craving belly. One such emporium is Barburrito, which offers fine street food of the Mex variety. Although there are several Barburritos across the land, the Liverpool branch is the one I’ve visited on a few occasions. On my trips to the city I have occasionally treated myself to some food from this excellent establishment.
The menu offers various tortilla filled delights, which the hungry hombre (or chica) can enjoy. Basically, you make your choice and build your meal to your own tastes. A bit like in Subway, where you add the fillings as you please. Only here, it’s Mexican themed all the way.
On this trip, I opted for a burrito, filled with spicy shredded beef. To this I asked the helpful serving staff to add rice, spicy beans, lettuce and cheese. I selected the chipotle salsa, which was the hot option. There were plenty of other ingredients to choose to individualise your meal exactly how you want it. A great many British people stress out, thinking Mexican food will be too spicy – this is simply not the case. Certainly not at Barburrito, where the food can be ordered just how you like it.
As per other restaurants, the meal can be augmented with extras; in this case items such as nachos and drinks. A great thing about Barburrito is they sell beer, so I chose a bottle of Negra Modelo – a favourite Mexican beer of mine.
There’s no such thing, in my book, as bad Mexican food. There is lazy, below par Mexican food though. Happily, Barburrito is good quality Mexican food – prepared quickly but with skill. It’s tasty, filling and extremely enjoyable.
My burrito was a bit on the spicy side, but not too much. I made a good choice and really enjoyed my lunch time treat. Great beer, too – though this combination wasn’t the cheapest option.
Food at Barburrito is well prepared and tastes great. It’s also a lot of fun to eat there. I’ve never been to Mexico (boo!) so can’t comment on authenticity, but Barburrito is a relaxed alternative option to the obvious high street choices. Highly recommended.
