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.

  1. Shoreditch High Street is dominated by Vietnamese restaurants, but that hasn’t stopped Death by Burrito from setting up shop just down the road. As its name implies Death by Burrito serves up mainly burritos, but all of its burritos are also available as tacos and there are also a few starters on the menu that don’t involve tortillas. It’s worth bearing in mind that Death by Burrito isn’t really a restaurant, more of a bar that happens to serve food. Located inside the dimly lit Catch bar, there are only around 24 covers so it pays to get there early and to be prepared to wait at the bar if necessary. The staff are warm and friendly, but they’re rushed off their feet handling both the bar and the booth-like tables which exacerbates the waiting times even further. It doesn’t help that the staff are rather lenient towards diners who have finished eating and are just nursing an old drink or two...
