Square Meal Review of Death By Burrito ?

This buzzy new mini-Mexican grill and ‘cocteleria’ (cocktail bar) at hip Shoreditch haunt Catch promises to stuff you until you burst, should you desire. Order duck breast with chimichurri, pig’s cheek with crackling or veggie variants of the eponymous wrap, served street food-style on paper trays. Alternatively, pig out on Baja fish tacos with slaw, courgette flower and ricotta crêpes, plantain croquettes, scallop ceviche and crab cakes, plus sides of drunken beans and homespun guacamole. An ex-Purl bartender pours the drinks, but if you’re no amigo of agave, you may be thrown by the tequila-only list. However, it’s worth persevering because Mexican new-wave ideas such as pink Paloma (made with raspberries, Aperol and vanilla-salted grapefruit soda), turbo chelada (a cucumber and lime lagerita topped with thyme-salt foam) and death by julep should convert you to the tequila cause.

    Gingle lists everything :: Death by Burrito, 7th August

    We got over to Catch at about 6:15. There were only a couple of other people in the place so we were told to just grab a seat and were asked if we were eating. We most certainly were. I'd done a little research on the place and commonly came across the fact that the burrito was £12 and therefore ridiculously expensive, that the service was pretty poor and cocktails miniscule. None of these things were true of my visit.I greedily looked at the menu and decided that everything sounded really good. But Stephen wouldn't allow me to order anything other than a main, as it was the day before my birthday and we had 'three...
