My Visit to Tortilla in UK

Hello, fellow foodies! I’m Jen, and I recently had the opportunity to dine at Tortilla. The anticipation had been building for a while, as I’d heard nothing but great things about this place. And let me tell you, it certainly lived up to the hype!

Trying Everything on the Menu

The highlight of my visit to Tortilla was that I had the chance to explore the entire menu, and trust me, it did not disappoint. From burritos to tacos, quesadillas to bowls, I left no stone unturned in my quest to savor the flavors of this beloved establishment.

Halal Chicken and Vegan Protein

One of the standout features of Tortilla that deserves a special mention is their commitment to inclusivity. Not only do they offer an array of mouthwatering options, but they also serve halal chicken and provide a vegan protein choice. So, whether you’re a meat lover or a dedicated vegan, you’ll find something to tantalize your taste buds.

The Burrito Bonanza

Now, let’s talk burritos, shall we? Tortilla’s burritos are nothing short of a flavor explosion. During my visit, I decided to go all out and ordered a burrito packed with pulled pork, also known as Carnitas. I was in for a treat, as it turned out to be a solid 10/10 experience.

The pulled pork was tender, juicy, and bursting with rich, savory goodness. The combination of flavors and textures was simply divine. This burrito was everything you’d want in a meal—packed, filling, and delicious. If you’re a fan of meaty, succulent goodness, this one is an absolute must-try.

Taco Time – Barbacoa vs. Vegan Chilli no Carne

Tacos, the beloved and versatile Mexican street food. At Tortilla, I had the pleasure of tasting two different taco fillings: pulled beef, known as Barbacoa, and a vegan chilli no carne. Now, I have to say, while both had their merits, I found myself favoring the pulled beef.

The pulled beef was not only more juicy but also incredibly flavorful. It had that melt-in-your-mouth quality that’s hard to resist. Don’t get me wrong, the vegan option was great for those seeking a plant-based choice, but if you’re looking for a taco that’s full of richness and zest, go for the Barbacoa. Tacos may have been my least favorite among burrito, quesadilla, and taco, but they were still a tasty treat.

The Quintessential Quesadilla

Now, let’s turn our attention to another gem on the menu: the quesadilla. I must say, the quesadilla at Tortilla had its own unique charm. It offered a delightful twist on traditional Mexican cuisine.

During my visit, I had the chance to sample various quesadilla options, and the standout for me was the one with grilled chicken. This choice had been highly recommended by the friendly staff, and it’s easy to see why. The combination of tender, succulent chicken and the savory quesadilla was bussin’ good! I’d rate it a solid 11/10 for the fantastic flavors and quality.

One thing that truly adds to the experience at Tortilla is the ability to customize your orders. It allows you to tailor your quesadilla to your preferences, whether you’re a fan of cheese sauce, guacamole, or a combination of both. It’s all about making your meal your own, and the staff is more than happy to accommodate your desires.

Churros Delight

As I continued my delightful journey through Tortilla, I couldn’t resist diving into the sweet side of things. And what better way to conclude a flavorful meal than with churros? Tortilla’s churros proved to be a highlight of the entire dining experience.

The churros were a perfect blend of soft, slightly crisp on the outside, and filled with rich, gooey chocolate on the inside. The sweetness was just right, and the chocolate filling was a delightful surprise. It added a burst of flavor to each bite, making the churros a memorable conclusion to our meal. If you have a sweet tooth like I do, you’re in for a real treat.

Margaritas and More

To elevate the experience further, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pair my meal with a refreshing drink. Margaritas proved to be the ideal choice. The balance of salty, sour, bitter, and sweet in a well-crafted margarita perfectly complemented the flavors of the food.

Tortilla’s margaritas were a delightful addition to the meal, enhancing the overall dining experience and making it even more enjoyable. The contrast of flavors was a true testament to the art of pairing, and it was clear that the right drink can enhance your meal to a whole new level.

Crafting the Perfect Combo

When it comes to enjoying your meal at Tortilla, crafting the perfect combination of ingredients is key. Whether you’re going for a bowl or a burrito, there are tried-and-true recommendations that can make your dining experience even more satisfying.

For a bowl, I’d highly recommend opting for tomato rice, black beans, and grilled chicken. It’s a combination that’s both flavorful and filling. If you’re leaning towards a burrito, you can’t go wrong with pulled pork, sour cream, and guacamole. The creamy textures and tangy flavors in this combo create a delightful explosion of tastes.

For both options, be sure to add some Pico De Gallo Salsa, sweet corn salsa, and lettuce. The fresh, vibrant ingredients enhance the overall dining experience. It’s all about creating a balanced and harmonious blend of flavors in every bite. And remember, you can always customize your order to suit your preferences.

In conclusion, my visit to Tortilla in the UK was an absolute culinary adventure. From the moment I stepped in, the anticipation of trying out this much-praised establishment was met with delightful surprises at every turn. The menu at Tortilla offers a rich tapestry of flavors, and the inclusivity of halal chicken and vegan protein options adds to its appeal.

The burritos were bursting with flavor, the tacos offered a range of taste experiences, and the quesadillas were a true highlight, especially when customized to personal preferences. Sweet endings were sweet indeed with churros filled with rich chocolate, and perfectly paired margaritas added a refreshing touch.

Crafting the perfect combination of ingredients is a rewarding endeavor, and Tortilla’s saucy secrets in the form of Salsa Roja and Salsa Verde provide the finishing touches that complete the experience.

But Tortilla isn’t just about the food; it’s about the entire experience. The ambiance, the service, and the wonderful memories created during my visit were just as memorable as the dishes themselves.
