Connor’s Burrito List

In which I rank all the burrito places that I have tried in London, to make sense of my own opinions and rankings and perhaps help a few people out.

Benito’s hat

The Burrito itself must be the best I have ever had. It tasted like a classic Burrito, with a sauce that is a cut above the rest. The complimentary chips they give are a little pointless.

☆☆☆☆☆

Wrap Chic

More curry in a wrap than it is a burrito, but it tastes damn good.

☆☆☆☆

Chipotle

Chipotle is what finally got me into burritos and they still taste good. They aren’t quite as cheap in the UK, and the peppers always seem a bit burned. They also boast the biggest portions that I have found.

☆☆☆☆

Burrito Gonzalez

After seeing a gig at the Roundhouse, I felt like death and needed a Burrito in me. Consequently, its hard to be objective about this place, as I basically swallowed the whole thing in one go. All I remember was that it tasted good, so I would certainly give this place another go, but can’t review it beyond that.

☆☆☆

Tortilla

Seems to be England’s biggest burrito chain. Not quite on Chipotle’s level but perfectly good if it is your only option. The flavours blend into eachother a bit too much and they are smaller than what chipotle offer.

☆☆☆

Poncho 8

A fine burrito, but beside feeling a bit more indie, it doesn’t actually do anything that Chipotle doesn’t and is actually more plain.

☆☆☆

Mi Casa

Convenient location and easy to order. A place for convenience rather than flavour. The beans certainly tasted a bit weird, or had a strange texture: and something in there was crunchy and inedible.

☆☆

Wahaca

Toasted tortilla was unusual but really I want to be able to comfortably hold the burrito. A decent taste but didn’t satisfy my urge for a normal burrito. You order in the more traditional resteraunty way too.

☆☆

Las Iguanas

One of the things I have most contempt for in this world is a burrito that doesn’t want to be a burrito. Not only do I not want to eat with a knife and fork, everything tasted wrong and was actually hard to get down.
