How to eat a burrito neatly - Poncho 8

Crowned as ‘Best burrito in London’ by the Evening Standard, my expectations were high. I love burritos for the sheer volume of ingredients you can fit into the wrap. This poses a slight problem when it comes to eating them. Fear not, Poncho 8 have a guide on how to eat a burrito neatly – very helpful.

I definitely recommend the barbacoa for the tender stringy beef. I also recommend having the Mexican Horchata water juice (£1), a combination of almonds, vanilla and cinnamon which packs a very sweet punch to cool down your spicy mouth.

And if you’re counting those calories, Poncho 8 has you covered. They offer a number of healthy options from a low fat and a low carb box to gluten free and vegan and even paleo! Delicious food doesn’t have to make you feel guilty. They even have a nutritional calculator so you can calculate how many calories are in your Poncho 8 burrito or anything you order.
