The most amazing fresh ingredients and with a delivery service for larger orders it makes it all the more enticing.
The vegetarian Burrito is to die for and certainly outdoes any of its rivals.
Will I be going back again.......you bet!

Wanting something quick, fresh and warm and fairly healthy too, you can't go far wrong with The Flying Burrito. Fast food with a difference. Approach the counter and immediately decide whether you would like a Burrito, Salad or Tacos. They all currently cost £6.10 without the additional optional items, but you can request a slightly smaller one for £5.25 if your not so hungry or of a smaller appetite.

Once you've chosen your meal you work your way along the counter, choosing between Pinto or Black Beans, Chicken, Pork or Vegetarian, Cheese, Quacamole,Pineapple & Sweetcorn Salsa, Sour Cream, Cheese, Lettuce & Cactus Leaves. Guacamole and Guindilla Chilli are extra so I opted for without and avoided the cheese as trying to be health conscious. The result was a delicious flavorsome hot lunch for slightly more than the cost of a sandwich!

Even during the peak lunch hour the wait was not too long and being both delicious and fairly healthy (especially if you avoid the cheese and Tortilla and opt for the Salad version instead). Will definitely be heading back here on a regular basis!

I've always been a fan of the burrito, and when this opened up across the road from my office I was filled with joy. Whilst they are a bit on the pricey side at about £7 including guacamole, it was nonetheless a satisfying change.

The pineapple salsa worked well with the tender pork, and the staff were friendly, but while the portion wasn't as big as some other burrito joints I've used in the past, it was still satisfying.

No option of a hot sauce is available at the counter to add, or wasn't to me, so for those who like it a bit warmer I'd suggest some of your own sauce, but it had a pleasant slow burn to it.

Only half a dozen seats inside so it's mainly going to be takeaway from here, but a place I'll definitely pop in to again.

Although their burritos taste fantastic and are well made from fresh ingredients, at £5-£6 each they don't compare price-wise to the multitude of choice you can get in Petticoat Lane market around the corner. At £4 each I would probably eat there everyday.
