Luardos, Whitecross Market, London
CATEGORY: Mexican / Tex Mex
FOOD: Burrito with beef (cooked in spicy chipotle), rice, black beans, cheese, tomato salsa, sour cream, lettuce, guacamole and lots of habanero!
DRINK: A can of coke
WE THINK: Having made it only 10 metres from the mint-green Luardos van with the foil-wrapped burritos in our hands, it was a disappointment to discover habanero and salsa trickle in steady streams down our sleeves. Thumbs up for being environmentally friendly and saving on the packaging - bit of a mess though. Luckily, we had a plate and cutlery handy and once over the initial disappointment, there was no denying this was a delicious burrito - the beef delicately seasoned and the guacamole full of coriander and freshness. We'll be back for more - next time the Carnitas burrito (slow-cooked pork).
OUR TIP: Visit the market on a rainy day to avoid queues.
PS: Burritos are not very photogenic - our burrito tasted much better than it looks.
