Known for their authentic Mexican fare, pretty much everything on El Burro’s menu is fantastic. The snacks to start are perfect for sharing, such as the fresh fish ceviche, the chips and guacamole, or the chilli relleno, a smoky, roasted jalapeno stuffed with queso fresco.
Some dishes, however, have earned themselves cult status and for good reason. The fish taco is one example, comprised of fried fish with shredded lettuce, smoked jalapeño dressing with avo, and pickled red onions on a corn tortilla. It’s the perfect bite (or four bites) with creamy avo, heat, limey acidity and crunch from the fish in batter. Other knockouts are the satisfyingly cheesy vegetarian quesadilla, with roasted butternut, caramelised onion and goat’s cheese, as well as the tender, delicately spiced chilorio pork.
Desserts are kept pretty simple: Opt for the warm churros with a dark chocolate dipping sauce, or one of the Las Paletas seasonal ice creams.
It goes without saying that a night at Taqueria will involve margaritas – and their classic version, also available in a jug, is a perfectly balanced, sweet, zingy and salty affair. Also worth considering is the paloma, a refreshing mix of grapefruit juice, a touch of simple syrup and tequila. The rest of the beverages are made up of a great selection of wines, such as Alphabetical, as well as some great local beers, namely Citizen, CBC and Devil’s Peak. If you’re a fan of hot chocolate, their Mexican-inspired one is one of the best in the city, made with dark chocolate, cinnamon and almonds.
The service is speedy, with a team of wait staff who are warm, welcoming and efficient.
