We won’t cut corners or buy the ready made equivalent in the wholesalers, every ingredient has to be made from scratch, and you can tell the difference in the taste and the nutrition.
The hallmark of Mexican food doesn’t have to be chillis, indeed it’s great without, you control the heat by adding your choice of chilli sauce, if any!.

If chillis aren't your thing finish off with our tangy southern sauce or our garlic chipotle sauce.

One of our most popular meals is the burrito, a thin flatbread tortilla filled with a range of ingredients. At Cantina el Burrito we prepared ours fresh, from scratch. People love them with a passion with the real star of the meal being what you put in them.

A typical burrito has rice, Mexican beans, guacamole (avocado, lime juice, tomato and red onion - blended to a sauce), sour cream, cheese, fresh salsa (tomato, red onion, pepper, coriander and lime), coriander, jalapenos, lettuce, red cabbage and your choice of sauces plus a serving of pulled pork, lime & coriander chicken, spicy beef or chilli con carne. We have a vegetarian option, Mexican beans and Quorn beef or chicken. So a few ingredients then!!
