Barburrito is a chain TexMex restaurant with branches all over Edinburgh. As the name suggests, they serve up burritos with a few fillings that are good for vegans, including their latest addition sweet potato chilli.
Vegan food available at Barburrito
I love burrito joints, as you’re generally able to find a safe vegan option that is filling and satisfying. As with most Mexican places, the tortillas, rice and beans (you get the choice of black or pinto beans) are all safe for vegans.
The veggie burrito consists of fried veggies or their vegan sweet potato chilli, mushrooms and guacamole. Top off with one of their salsas and you have a completely meat and dairy free wrap of tasty goodness! Don’t fancy a tortilla? You can opt for a “naked burrito”, which is basically all the fillings simply served in a bowl.
The tortilla chips are safe for vegans too, just get them with a salsa dip or guacamole, and you’re good to go.
How much does it cost?
At the time or writing, a small burrito is £5.95, and a regular or naked burrito is £6.95. If you want a burrito with a side of chips, dip and drink, expect to pay around £11.00.
Is it any good?
Whenever I go, I usually get the veggie burrito with a couple of jalapenos and spicy salsa. The quality of Barburrito is pretty consistent, and while there are other (more local) burrito establishments in the city that are just as good if not better, I never begrudge paying this place a visit if I am craving some quick, cheap and satisfying nosh in the West End. Well worth a visit.
I visited the Barburrito branch on Shandwick Place, but also bear in mind there are outlets on Forrest Road, Edinburgh Airport and Lothian Road as well – so you are never far away from a decent burrito!
