What the Guac?!

If you live in Birmingham, or beyond, you will know that Grand Central has finally opened and has opened up a whole world of possibility with it. I was able to try Tortilla the day before it all opened and to sample a little bit of that possibility with it.
The concept of Tortilla is somewhat like Subway, in that you pick exactly how you want your filling, however that is exactly where the comparison ends.There is a choice of three meals:- burrito, taco or a naked burrito; then there is a choice of three fillings:- grilled chicken, grilled steak, barbacoa (beef) and carnitas (pork). There is a vegetarian choice but I am not aware of what it is as it is not outlined on the online menu. Also, please note that the chicken is halal, wop wop!

I decided to go for a large naked burrito with grilled chicken, then a mixture of Mexican and lime and coriander rice, black beans, a little pepper and onions, salsa verde and a little guacamole, as it had run out *sad face*.

I have to say that this was the best naked burrito/best burrito I have ever had in Birmingham and in general. The chicken was succulent, juicy and flavoursome, and it was especially good with the salsa verde. There was nothing in the naked burrito that I wasn't pleased with and the portion was more than filling!

I also had tortilla chips, which were fresh and crunchy, and also could not be faulted.

Overall, I love the concept of this place, love how good the quality is, the portion and the price is amazing for how good it is. I will definitely be going back!
