Atmosphere-free refit of an atmosphere-free refit of a former Pret: El Mexicana seems to churn out a solid burrito, although doesn’t come near some of its neighbours.
Nevertheless, the Barbecoa meat was flavoursome and mid-way between dry & moist. The wrap was performed a little naively and felt a bit too wide to be considered ideal. Chipotle salsa imbued a wonderful smokiness, which mainly covered up that the Mexican Rice tasted like it’d either been made from a supermarket packet, or in bulk in a school lunchroom.
Not somewhere I’d take burrito-lovin’ friends to impress them, but at £5.79 for most of the burritos on offer (and they have taco baskets & other stuff too) it nudges in as an easy & decent lunch candidate if you’re in the neighbourhood.
