When you think of Mexican food, what's the first thing that springs to mind? The brilliant burrito has to be up there, jam-packed full of sumptuous ingredients all enhancing one another. While Mexican cuisine has some amazing offerings, the burrito doesn't stop there. In fact, it has been used in other cultures as well. Japanese sushi restaurants, for instance, have taken the idea and made it fashionable in Asian circles.
1. Sushi Burrito
As mentioned above, some Japanese eateries have begun to realise that sushi in burrito form is an absolute winner. Because who wouldn't want a giant piece of sushi that they can pick up with their hands? At Sake Jr, there are three sushi burritos to choose from. The options are Tuna, Beef or Egg and Mushroom. We found them all absolutely delicious and struggled to pick a winner. Sorry, but you'll just have to try them all!
2. Carnitas Burrito
While it's exciting to try an Asian take on the burrito, if you want to enjoy it in its classic form you need to go Mexican. Luckily for Melbourne residents, there are so many great eateries serving up sublime offerings of supreme cuisine. One of these is El Sabor, where only the freshest ingredients are used to bring a true taste of Mexico. Here we recommend the Carnitas Burrito, which is one of the most popular choices on the menu. This is thanks to the succulent, heavenly pulled pork that just melts in your mouth. That's complemented perfectly by the gorgeous green salsa and perfect pico de gallo. We can hear your stomach rumbling from here!
3. Burrito IQ
If you're the kind of person who likes to be in control of their burrito fillings, check out the menu at Zambrero and order the Burrito IQ. Here you can choose between flavourful meats or a healthy vegan filling for your wrap. This is accompanied by black rice, guacamole and the restaurant's famous IQ salsa. It's this final addition that makes these burritos so memorable and trust us when we say you'll be telling your friends about them!
4. Broad Bean & Chickpea Falafel Burrito
Burritos aren't just for meat lovers – there are some fine options for vegetarians on the market as well. One of the trendiest offerings around at the moment is meat free – the Broad Bean & Chickpea Falafel Burrito at Fonda. This amazing wrap is packed full of awesome goodness, but still has all the qualities of indulgent comfort food. There's no need to have a cheat day when you can get a burrito brimming with quinoa, black beans and shaved cabbage! Have as many as you want, your body will thank you.
