Mission Burrito: The Best Burrito in Town!

I am embarrassed to tell you that I only discovered burritos last year, when I was visiting one of my gorgeous friends in London. I cannot tell you what a taste sensation it was for me, and ever since they've become my favourite food, which is why I'm on a mission (get it?!) to find the best burrito!

We had planned a weekend away to Birmingham (my lovely home town) for Warren's birthday and we were super chuffed to be invited to try out Mission Burrito's delicious food.

Situated in the very well known Bull Ring in the centre of the city, Mission Burrito is located on the outside of the shopping centre, alongside other eateries and in full view of St Martin's Church. The restaurant is very cute and holds a lot of charm, I particularly love the light up 'Burrito' sign, the funky wall designs and the brightly coloured chairs.

We arrived around lunchtime and we were greeted by Asta and Charlie, who are both passionate about Mission Burrito! We watched them prepare burritos and chatted to them about their store. It was so lovely to see them so excited and enthusiastic about their work, and I love their extensive knowledge about flavour and taste, perfect for someone like me who is pretty indecisive!

Warren opted for a double burrito, one half filled with pork and the other beef. I chose a chicken burrito because I've never had one with chicken in before and I like trying out new things, especially when it comes to burritos! The food was put together pretty fast and I have no idea how they roll them up with the enormous yummy food inside! 

We sat outside and admired the lovely view as the sun shone down on us. After snapping a few pictures we started tucking in and we were in burrito heaven. The chicken and rice was delicious and Warren really enjoyed the challenge of the double wrap…

I think it's so easy to forget how much goes into these gorgeous burritos (rice, meat, vegetables and more!), and with prices starting from £3.95 you really can't go wrong. 

To wash it all down we tried out their gorgeous Jarritos fizzy fruit drinks, Warren chose mango and I tried pineapple; they were so refreshing and perfectly matched with the burritos. 

We really enjoyed our lunch, the burritos are so filling (in a good way!) and our tummies were very grateful to all the different flavours and exciting textures inside. 
We had such a lovely afternoon together, taking in the sights of good old Brum and eating delicious food.  From the delicious burritos to the enthusiastic and friendly staff, I can see why Mission Burrito have such loyal customers…

I love being in Birmingham city, it holds a special place in my heart and this was such a fab way to start our trip.
We can't wait to visit them again soon!
Have you been to Mission Burritio? What's your favourite thing on the menu?
