It was whilst I was living in Vancouver that a friend introduced me to Mexican food. Over a year has passed since then and I have dined my way through crunchy taco shells, sweet churros and eye watering tequila. So when I was invited to a Burrito Masterclass, I jumper at the chance.
My younger brother, a fellow Mexican cuisine enthusiast, tagged along with me to Barburrito. Barburrito, which has been open for about 6 months, sits nestled amongst the restaurants of St. David’s Shopping Centre. It’s carefully planned out space with a long burrito bar down one side and seating adjacent. For anyone who knows me well, I love my sandwiches. And burritos are like the exotic cousins of sandwiches. So expectations where high.
Before making our burritos we were given samples of all the fillings they offer. You can choose from the two different types of rice all the way up to four different meat and sauce options. The ethos at Barburrito is that you build your burrito exactly they way you want it.
After choosing your ingredients, it comes to the tricky part – folding your burrito wrap. The trick apparently is to roll it as tight as possible. After its rolled, wrap foil around it and twist the ends. Tada!
Now all that’s left to do is eat your burrito.
