Miro’s Burrito Box
As you may have picked up from previous reviews, I’m not the world’s biggest fan of Mexican food. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that I don’t think we’re particularly well served for Mexican options in Edinburgh.
One of the better ones is Miro on Rose Street, so I was intrigued when they took over the police box just across from their cantina and opened it as a burrito stand. I popped along to visit on a windy Thursday.
They offered a range of burrito fillings. While I paused to consider, the very friendly counter man suggested that if I was really hungry I should try the Gringo (£4.95), as with its meaty mince delights it was likely to be the biggest portion. I was happy to go with that recommendation.
Having lightly toasted the wrap casing, the chap was soon stuffing it full of goodies. I invited him to add everything available, which he was more than happy to do. The tightly packed burrito was then given a further toasting before it was wrapped in foil and paper then handed over. I ate as I walked.
It proved one of the best burritos I’ve had in the city, right up there with the likes of Taquito. It packed meaty notes from the beef and had a good supporting cast of flavours and textures. The wrap case was particularly satisfying with its light crispness. I enjoyed it very much.
So overall, Miro’s Burrito Box is well worth a visit. For a very reasonable price, they offer well-prepared and really enjoyable burritos. I look forward to visiting again and would recommend you do the same.
