I'm on a Mission for a Vegan Burrito!

The last time I visited Mission Burrito, I wasn't enthused. To be frank I was quite let down. So when I got invited to Mission Burrito's Blogger Evening. I was sceptical. Which was thankfully an opinion that was turned right around. 

It was also interesting to hear why the eatery is called Mission Burrito and what their ethos was. They focus on the Mission District in San Francisco, as it is known for it's Latino roots, hipster vibe, colour and amazing food. They strive on being all about organic and freshly made food. Which is shown through the fact that everything is made all in-house and is slow cooked.

The blogger evening allowed me to try out the Black Bean and Butternut Squash Chili Vegan Wrap, the tortilla chips, guacamole and even have a go at making a wrap. Which is a lot harder than it looks! The wrap was amazing and I hope they make it permanent soon because it is so packed full of flavour and a great amount of veggies. Right now it's a special that they run once in a while.

I like the vast amount of vegan options that are available and the subway style of it all allows you to have exactly what you want. This meant my burrito was uber fat but uber tasty and filling.

I especially loved the habanero red pickled onions. They are so flavourful and it adds another dimension that sang to my tastebuds.

Look at the little fattie of a vegan burrito! It contained the black bean and butternut squash chilli, pico de gallo salsa, guac, lime coriander rice, mixed veg, lettuce, jalapenos, habanero red onion pickle, mild salsa verde in a seeded wholemeal wrap.

I wasn't half bad at making a burrito, just not as good as fellow Brummie blogger Ting, but enough to get a burrito van and travel the world. I kid, I think. Ting took this image of me shown above, obviously showing my skills.

Overall, my view of the eatery has been turned on its head because of the vegan Black Bean and Butternut Squash Chilli and I will definitely be revisiting when I see that on the menu again.

Would I go back? Yes but only when a certain vegan option is on the menu

Why? Great vegan options, you get exactly what you want and good prices

How was the service? Really friendly but it was a blogger event, so I am a little biased. I'll get back to you on that

How did they cope with the vegan dietary requirement? Really easily, as the staff knew what was vegan and what wasn't

What are the prices like? The burrito shown above would be around £5, which is pretty damn reasonable

Have you been? What did you think?

**Many thanks to Mission Burrito for the invite and for allowing me to look around the eatery and eat so much. You guys rock!**
