Food truck – and now two takeaway stores – bringing Mexican street food with a Scottish twist to Edinburgh.
The Bonnie Burrito crew have been fusing Mexican food with, as they say, ‘the delights of Scotland’ (cue many, many possible jokes) since they threw up the shutters of their Lauriston Place truck back in 2015. Since that early day in Edinburgh’s surging street food scene, they’ve added two takeaway stores (Gorgie Road and South Clerk Street) to serve up satisfactorily stuffed burritos-with-a-twist-or-two. Stack your fillings your way, but do be tempted to go full (Mexican)-Scottish with haggis, or their signature Irn-Bru pulled pork. Load it up with coriander and lime rice, black beans, guac, sour cream and salsa; add a sweet-and-heat hit of mango habañero or hot, hot, hot Scotch bonnet sauce, and feel a lot warmer about life for a while. You could even indulge in an ingenious stuffed burrito, or if you’re carb-counting, choose a wrap-less ‘naked’ burrito. Which would of course let you have a tablet milkshake too, and a brownie for afters.
