There is a story that during the Mexican Revolution (1910-1921), in Juárez, Chihuahua (Northern Mexico) a man named Juan Méndez sold tacos from a street stand, using a donkey to transport himself and his food. To help keep the food warm, he had the idea of wrapping the food in a large flour tortilla inside individual napkins. His fame spread and people came and asked for the “food of the burrito” (donkey).
Burritos are one of the most popular examples of Mexican cuisine throughout the world. We think Juan and his donkey would be proud of the tradition he started over a century ago.
Amongst dozens of burrito options in London, El Burrito is unique because:
All our fillings and toppings are prepared with 100% fresh and natural ingredients expertly cooked by the team of our partner restaurant, Mestizo (Best Mexican Restaurant in LUKAS Awards 2011) and assembled by our expert burrito wrappers.
We are Mexican owned, managed, served and cooked!
Our menu speaks of our Mexican authenticity: quesadillas, Baja California-style tacos, tinga, cochinita pibil, mole poblano, tamales, enchiladas and many more.
We are not a chain, all our efforts are focused in a single location in Fitzrovia.
We cater! So you can have us at your party with a full ensemble of Mexican goodness.
We have a Mexican Grocery Shop within the restaurant, so here you can get every salsa, frijoles and tortillas you need to enjoy a piece of Mexico in your own house.
We deliver (yes, literally AND metaphorically) within the Fitzrovia area. Give us a shout! 020 7580 5048.
