Tortilla was started by husband and wife team Brandon and Jen in London in 2007 after a four year search to find decent tacos and burritos in the city. Tortilla serve up classic California-style Burritos and Tacos inspired by the taquerias in the Mission District of San Francisco‚ the self-proclaimed burrito capital of the world. Tortilla is now the UK and Europe’s largest fast-casual Mexican restaurant group, with more than 21 locations and a reputation as one of the UK’s most up and coming restaurant chains, is set its first outlet in the UAE on 31 August 2016 . Dubai residents and visitors experience Tortilla at the Festival City Mall outlet.
The menu offers a range of authentic fillings and toppings such as chargrilled chicken, steak and barbacoa (slow cooked beef for hours until fall-apart tender). The interiors shout out loud of any street food outlet in UK with rustic wood finish walls with net racks, writings depicted on walls, dazzling bulbs hanging from the ceilings. It shouted out loud Welcome to Tortilla with Style!!!
Here is a snap shot of how to eat your Burritos.
So we were hosted by a lovely lady and she advised some of the best signature dishes of theirs. The menu is a short one page, so you went get confused what to choose.
To start with I ordered the California Burrito, it is flour tortilla filled with Chicken, Tomato, Black Beans, Cheese, Sour Cream, Guacamole and Salsa Varde. The filling was generous, just enough for two and the taste divine. I am not to fan of Burritos but this was a real delicious one.
We were served Jarritos, made with natural fruit flavors and are more carbonated then the traditional soft drinks sold in the U.S. The word Jarrito derives from the word “jug” in Spanish and refers to the Mexican tradition of drinking water and other beverages in clay jugs. We opted for the Cola and Orange flavor.
Santa Fe Tacos, crispy soft flour taco, grilled shrimps, cheese, sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo. This ones were the best, the filling all delicious and perfectly done, the shrimps added so much character to the dish.
Quesadilla, toasted tortilla filled with your choice of Meat and I opted for the Beef Steaks, cheese and pica de gallo. Served with a salsa and sour cream. The Beef were juicy, tender and moist and it simply melted in my mouth. The filling with the Cheese and Beef added so much to the dish enlightenment. A must try at Tortilla.
Nachos Queso, tortilla chips topped with cheese sauce, jalapenos, pico de gallo and guacamole. This ones reminded me of my movie time snacks but a way more deliciosu way. Crispy nachos with hot piping cheese is what you need right now in this beautiful weather here in Dubai.
Here comes my Dessert Churros, Mexican style doughnuts served with Caramel and Chocolate sauce. Bites of happiness in my mouth, sugar spiked churros with the delicious sauce was what you need after a delicious meal.
Overall it was an enjoyable evening snack out for my hubby and me. Try this amazing place and I am sure you will surely go back again and again.
