Inspired by the taquerias in San Francisco, the self-proclaimed burrito capital of the world, Tortilla is the stuff of Mexican street food dreams. Londoners certainly think so – Tortilla was recently crowned Zagat's #1 Mexican restaurant in London. When you're in the mood for something spicy, fun and satisfying, think tacos, burritos and quesadillas – Californian-Mexican food that's vibrant, fresh and fun.
Burrito or bowl?
Tortilla serves up classic burritos and tacos in proper Mexican fashion. Top picks include the California Burrito – a soft flour tortilla filled with smoky grilled chicken, tomato-infused rice, rich black beans, cheese, sour cream, guacamole and salsa verde. Another favourite is their Tres Tacos trio – soft or crispy corn tortillas with your choice of meat, salsas, shredded cheese or sour cream and shredded iceberg lettuce.
We love customizing our burritos and tacos with the brilliant pick your meal option. Choose your own authentic fillings and toppings, such as chargrilled chicken or steak and barbacoa – beef that's cooked for hours until fall-apart tender. Plus, if you're not a carb lover, you can try the burrito bowl with all the same ingredients. Substitute rice for lettuce to make a healthy salad and swap meat for a tasty vegetarian filling – anyone can join in the fun.
The hunt for the burrito
Mexican cuisine is a fusion of indigenous Mesoamerican cooking with European, especially Spanish influences. Spicy, colorful, and full of flavour – it's the perfect finger food to share with friends and family. From diced jalapenos and fiery salsa to cheesy tacos and limy rice, there's a range of flavours up for grabs – and we just can't get enough.
Neither could Brandon and Jen. The married couple started the restaurant in 2007 after a four-year search to find decent tacos and burritos in London. Tortilla has now expanded across the globe, cooking award-winning California-style Mexican cuisine.
Tortilla also holds the highest rating with the Sustainable Restaurant Association for a burrito chain – they're completely obsessed with sourcing the best ingredients they can, including barn-reared chicken and farm-assured beef. And that's not all – everything is fresh and all toppings and fillings are made from scratch.
Feels good, tastes great
There's a load of exciting tastes on offer, and the menu is perfect for vegetarians. Choose a pinto bean filling – freshly prepared and flavoured with onion, garlic and spices for a California twist – or slow-cooked black beans along with marinated vegetables and an extra helping of guacamole.
After all that flavour, you might need something refreshing. That's when a Frozen Margarita, cold bottle of water or can of soft drink will come in handy. Finally, finish off your meal with a homemade churros or chocolate banana quesadilla – the sweetest Cali-Mex treat.
