SquareMeal Review of Tortilla Leadenhall Market

This rapidly expanding mini-chain may not come with table service or a large menu, but it delivers a very creditable rendition of freshly made, full-flavoured Mexican fast food. Queue at the counter & order a tortilla, burrito or salad, then watch in amazement as it is shimmied down the production line & layered right before your eyes: think slow-braised pork heaped onto a soft corn tortilla, with spoonfuls of salsas & vegetables, then parcelled up & passed to the till. Questions come rapid-fire, ‘black beans or pinto’, ‘sour cream or cheese’, & staff have little patience for the uninitiated, but once done & dusted, the end result is worth the Stasi-like interrogation. Ingredients are wholesome & homemade, so it’s only if you add several just-churned cocktails from the frozen margarita machine that you should feel a tiny stab of guilt.

Amazing! Tortilla have opened this branch in the building where S&M used to be in Leadenhall Market. They make tortillas and buerritos freshly and to your exact spec – you choose whether you would like chicken, pork or steak (or go veggie), plus what you want to fo with it – so sour cream, cheese, guacamole, salsa – hot or mild, different types of rice, fried peppers and onions, jalapenos – the list goes on. Honestly, they are so amazing – the flavours are so good. It was a sad day when S&M closed, but it is happy days once again now that Tortilla has arrived in its place!! Yum. And you can eat in or order online and collect aswell (which is probably sensible if you're getting takeaway as the queues are as big as you'd expect for food this good!!)
