I’d like to bring your attention to a fine contender in London’s ever developing burrito wars. Initially I was ready to let this place pass me by. It was the name. I was all “Amigo’s. Mm-hm. Whatever.” Luckily my extensive network of gastro-ninja-scouts set me back on track, though even then I was skeptical. A new Mexican that’s reportedly tasty, cheap and down the road from me just sounded too good to be real. I’ve been burned before, but praise be to the gods of tortilla-wrapped, Central-American snack foods, because the legends were true. They were all true. Hyperbole aside, on the menu so far I’ve only been through the burritos – chicken, pork and beef (the holy trinity of burrito fillings), but based on the quality of those alone and the fact that with all the trimmings, your overstuffed bundle of guacamole laced joy will still be a quid cheaper than anywhere else, you’d be a fool not to check it out. A fool, I tell you. / Foo D
