Eating & Drinking Guide

Barburrito brought their brash, bold, burrito bar brand from LA to the UK back in 2005. Fourteen years later, it has spread to 22 locations, from stations to shopping centres. Edinburgh has four for a Mexican-style pitstop – one at the airport and three in the city centre at Shandwick Place, Lothian Road and Forrest Road. While there are also nachos, tacos and quesadillas, the core offering is of course the burrito, with a choice of fillings. However, some, like chicken and chorizo, cost a little extra, while you’ll need to add guacamole as an extra to your classic burrito. For the carb-conscious, there’s the wrap-less naked burrito, while in the superfood version, slaw replaces rice. Add sides like dirty fries, and wash down your wrap with bottomless soft drinks, while beer and cider are also available. Ping-pong and table football provide the entertainment.
