Enjoy beautifully plated Mexican cuisine in a relaxed setting, thoughtfully decorated with objets d’art that each has a story to tell.
Chilli renellos – El Burro’s version of chilli poppers – are a popular starter, stuffed with cashew cream or queso fresco. Otherwise try the taquitos – a flavour feast of sweet potato and soft feta wrapped in corn tortillas, fried and topped with a jalapeño and ginger sauce, and spiced with sour cream and arbol chilli.
For mains, the chorizo con patatas quesadilla is mouth-watering, with diced crispy potatoes, roast tomato salsa and melted queso fresco on corn tortillas and chimichurri salsa. The carne asada’s tender, tasty, grass-fed steak slices are topped with chipotle butter and served with crispy potato chips and a rocket salad. Order your tacos ready-made or create your own from a list of fillings.
The dessert options are churros, dark chocolate fondant, and las paletas, or Mexican ice pops.
The drinks menu features a comprehensive list of tequilas, including local ones. In addition to craft beers, wines and ciders, there are a couple of mezcals and an exciting selection of cocktails. For a soothing non-alcoholic drink on a cold night, try the Mexican-inspired hot chocolate – it’s made with 100% dark chocolate and has hints of almond and cinnamon.
The staff are warm, gracious and attentive.
The large, pink-painted interior with Mexican or Mexico-inspired objets d’art combines fun with a warm and cosy feeling. On cold winter nights, the indoor fireplace and outdoor heaters make El Burro as welcoming as it is on a rollicking summer night.
