Expert review of Barburrito
Barburrito is great for a tasty and filling meal when time is too precious to linger over a three-course dinner. The concept of freshly prepared Mexican street food has proved to be so popular that two more branches have opened in Manchester (on Deansgate and in the Trafford Centre), as well as a branch in Leeds and one in Liverpool.
The menu is simple - choose your dish (burrito, burrito bowl, tacos or nachos), add a filling (chicken, pork, beef, steak or vegetables), decide how spicy you would like your salsa to be (I’ve yet to brave the extra hot) then, if that’s not enough, add extras such as guacamole. The food is bursting with flavour but is sometimes not quite warm enough for my liking.
I like the burrito bowl but need to learn when to stop adding extras to it.
The brightly coloured, glass-fronted restaurant is a cheerful space. Derek the donkey stares at you from the green wall next to the counter and pictures on the wall are emblazoned with phrases about the food being served - for example “simple, honest and delicious”. Diners are a complete mixture of ages and types including students, office workers, families and football fans on the way to a match.
The staff behind the conveyor-belt-like counter are quick and efficient.
Barburrito is in Piccadilly Gardens, next to the bus and metro stations.
Dishes cost from £4.25 for a veggie filling to £5.25 for a steak filling. Extra veg (peppers and onion or mushrooms) cost 50p and guacamole costs 75p.
The other two branches of Barburrito are ideal for shoppers - one is on Deansgate and the other in the Trafford Centre. See the website below for more information.
