Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

After opening in Falkirk three years ago, Habanero Mexican Street Food has expanded east with a small takeaway joint in Portobello and a larger, licensed restaurant along the road in Musselburgh. Crispy tacos come loaded with your choice of fillings, rice or salad, sour cream, cheese and one of their homemade salsas, ranging from a light and fresh mild option to the deliciously smoky habaneros. For those with a larger appetite, burritos are stuffed full of all this plus rice and beans. If you want to sit-in there are a few stools by the window where you can sit and watch the world go by and although the Portobello branch isn’t licensed there’s a good selection of soft drinks and great set menu deals up until 4pm on weekdays too.
