Takeaway review
Big fat burritos are the order of the day (or more likely evening) at Taco Mazama. The Mexican chain of two – the original city centre branch and the sit-in or takeout west end version – offers good value from a brief but tempting takeaway menu, much of which travels well, with online ordering and reliable delivery. For just under a fiver the brick-size burrito comes loaded with rice, beans, cheese, salsa and sour cream – plus a filling of your choice, including marinated chicken with meaty chargrilled flavour and very tasty slow-cooked barbecue pork. The quesadillas are a more subdued snack, served in either half or full portions and filled with cheese, caramelised onions and a desired filling.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017/18 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This is authentic US-style Mexican food. The menu is not vast but the freshness of the food makes this a must-visit to either of their branches. On offer are burritos, chillis, nachos, tacos and quesadillas – a grilled cheese 'sandwich' of tortillas served with extra fillings – which are probably the stars of the show. The side salsa comes in four different heat strengths and the jalapenos would be hot and crunchy enough to satisfy a real cowboy. The meat and veg fillings are a notch above what you might expect at a takeaway – the char-grilled chicken has a depth of meaty flavour and the barbecue pork, slow-cooked for seven hours, has a rich fruity sauce that complements the pork and chillis with a Christmassy spice. Vegetarians can opt for zucchini with peppers and butternut squash or aubergine and mushroom. The massive burritos – rice, beans, sour cream, salad, cheese and meat or vegetables all wrapped in soft floury, convenient and easy-to-carry, tortilla – are a generous meal in themselves.
