As I’ve said before, I have a slight blind-spot around Mexican food. It so often fails to excite that I’m practically immune to its charms, but I persist in the hope that one day things will all fall into place for me.

The Mighty Mexican is a street food truck that often trades at the Tram Stop market. I’ve visited at least twice before sampling different things from their menu, which focusses on variously filled burritos. On today’s visit I chose the veggie vegito (£5.50).

The friendly stallholder was quickly about assembling the dish from various elements. As is my way, I nodded to just about everything, choosing the mild chilli sauce as the final component. I was soon on my way, munching on the go.

As with previous visits, I found the item quite loosely wrapped which made for messy and distingrating eating. The filling was decent but it was rather dominated but underseasoned and bland rice. It was decently filling, but little beyond.

So overall, although the Mighty Mexican has built an appreciative audience, it’s not a particular favourite with me. It’s pefectly pleasant and you won’t get anything that’s not a good, solid effort, but it just doesn’t set my heart aflutter.
