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?

My problem with Zambreros is that you have to be pretty picky about which one you go to. The Manuka one is so bad. They give you hardly any filling (like, seriously, less than what the standard should be) and won’t give you more (apparently 3cm of thinly spread beans is more than enough) unless you pay extra. The Zambreros in Civic has always been pretty good. The Braddon one was the best but it’s closed down now 🙁

Yeah had that problem with the Jamison store so stopped going. Braddon was good with a bonus tango deal.

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.

There used to be Francisco’s in Manuka, but unfortunately that closed a while ago. It wasn’t the best, but it was good because it was the only one.

The last time I went to Zamberos (Gungahlin) I asked for a burrito without the rice. What I got was literally the size of an apple. Lesson learned.
