Whether it’s for a quick lunchtime visit, or a late finish pick-me-up, there’s a lot to be said for Barburrito. These guys are skilled at whipping up quick, tasty – and often healthy – fast food for the masses, with streamlined precision. The latest branch is in a prime location on Forrest Road (you’ll also find them on Shandwick Place and Lothian Road), welcoming swarms of lunchtime school children, students, and perfectly positioned for the festival rush of August. Pick your preferred vessel (burritos, tacos, nachos or quesadillas), then get ready to load it up with your choice of shredded pork, chicken, beef, or roasted veggies and top with endless options such as guacamole, jalapeños, and salsas – varying in potency and spice – to seal the deal. No forks required, just sit and devour with your bare hands. These offerings are tightly packed and delicious – expect good bang for your buck. There’s also an impressive superfoods burrito, covering four of your five-a-day in one fell swoop. Children will be taken care of with the rather sweetly named bambino menu.
