Best of Canberra – Burritos

By Bec Cuzzillo - 1 September 2015 26

Burritos are seriously the best. Whether it’s for lunch, dinner or even a cheeky snack, a good burrito will always hit the spot.

My favourite thing about burritos is their versatility. You can be healthy and skip the cheese or you can go the whole hog with double meat, cheese and sour cream. If you like it spicy, you can get the ‘three chilli’ sauce or if you’re more on the mild side, hold the jalapenos please.

When it comes to burritos, there really is something for everyone and this week, I want to know where you get yours.

For me, the key to a good burrito is all in the construction. You could have the best quality ingredients in the world, but if it’s wrapped up the wrong way – well, there really is nothing worse than biting into a burrito and only getting a mouthful of sour cream. No one wants to end up like this guy.

So tell me Canberra – who constructs the best burrito in town?

To vote, let me know who makes your favourite burritos in the comments below. I’ll try the two most popular places and let you know the verdict in next Monday’s Taste Off article.

What’s Your opinion?

Zambrero, Guzman and Mad Mex are all reasonable. Would be interesting to have an independent sole operator in the mix but unfortunately don’t know of one in Canberra.

Mad Mex. They have really great salsas – although I do love that Guzman has a fish option.

Maccas mate. Get one of them crispy chicken wrap thingys…pretty much the same as a burrito, specially if you get a spicy one…and you dontt even have to get out of the car. Thats a win in my book.

An airbag is not going to protect you against that self inflicted gaffe.

From the vego perspective historically its been gusman,zambreros then mad Mex for me. Had a few poor gusmans of late so its back to zambreros.

The one with grilled chicken is healthier (or a lot less unhealthier) but yes, they are a tasty treat a couple of times a year and the packaging is usually mess free.

I like Mad Mex but that is mostly because they were the first to do wholemeal rice and tortillas. In civic I go for Guzman y Gomez but in Belconnen I go to Mad mex.

Zambreros!

Guzman y Gomez. Streets ahead of Zambreros

Gusman y Gomez.

I’m interested to see how the result of this Best of Canberra burritos taste off compares to the taco taste off earlier this year. I think it’s much harder to find a life-changing burrito than it is to find a good taco, especially since tacos are on the menu at a lot of bars/tapas-y places.

Burritos always seem a bit more low-brow (has anyone ever eaten a gourmet burrito? I’d love to try one) compared to tacos.

A great burrito is defined by the tortilla. Zambreros used to do it for me, but now when I want a great burrito I go to Beach Burrito in the city. Try the flying pig – it’s good.

Gusman y Gomez.

I reckon Beach Burrito does a pretty good job 🙂

Zambreros v Gusmany Gomez would be the match up here, I reckon.
