The humble burrito comes in many sizes and forms, you can add beans, rice, salsas and everything in between. It seems everyone has a different idea about what a fantastic burrito should be, so I've tracked down four quite different tasty burrito options, to try and find Adelaide's best burrito.
Zambrero Chicken Burrito
Zambrero can be found tucked down Rundle street, it's bright green facade is a little hard to miss. Inside you'll be greeted by friendly staff and giant burritos. Zambrero's menu and salsa options make it easy to choose your meal, even for the burrito novice.
Pros: * Zambrero are open till 10:30pm Sunday-Wednesday and till 3am Thursday-Saturday, plenty of options for a late night burrito. * Adding to the flavour of your burrito Zambrero have a range of tasty sauces like their scrumptious chipotle. * Get your party on because Zambrero also offer margaritas to wash down your meal. * You're in charge of your burrito, choosing just what goes in it every step of the way.
Cons: * Zambrero only have one size burrito, and it is big, they may be a little big for some people's appetite. * Adding guacamole costs an extra $2. * Burritos start at around $9.90 which means they aren't the cheapest of Adelaide burritos.
Burp Chicken Burrito
Burp Burrito is the fun loving burrito bar where their burritos are the namesakes of masked Mexican wrestlers. They're just up Hindley Street and have a new location opening up at Noarlunga.
Pros: * Like Zambrero you get to choose exactly what goes in your burrito. * Burp have a great selection of fresh salsas, choose your favourite or have them all. * With two different sizes there is a burrito for everyone. * Burritos start at only $7.90. * You can wash your burrito down with a great range of Mexican beer, we don't just mean Coronas. * Guacamole is free.
Cons: * Burp have a super busy lunch hour, so you might want to try and avoid it. * Sometimes they do run out of guacamole, and then it's a sad day.
Leaving the main drag, Salsas can be found at Westfield Marion, but don't let the location fool you because this one is a gem. Salsas offer an interesting mix of fresh mex options with flavour combinations you might not have thought of.
Pros: * Lots of different flavour combos, like their California Salad burrito featuring a mango and pineapple salsa. * Salsas feature a kids menu so you don't have to waste a plus size burrito on a tiny stomach. * Salsas also feature one of the best loyalty programs around, earn points each time you buy and cash them in anytime. This means a discounted burrito if you want it, or you can build up your points for a freebie. * Try their mexicrincles for some tasty and adorably named hot chips.
Cons: * Salsas have a fixed menu so there isn't much chance for a customizing your burrito.
Burger Theory 'Mole' Black Bean Burrito
Burger Theory are the new name on Adelaide's streets, but they might be a little hard to track down. The Burger Theory food truck moves around and can sometimes be seen hanging around Branch Coffee or kicking back at the Adelaide Roller Derby, if you want to try their burritos you'll have to try and find them first. Follow their Facebook or Twitter accounts for future locations.
Pros: * These burritos are delicious, somehow they manage to pop a whole load of flavour into a small package. * Half of the fun of Burger Theory is tracking them down, so keep your ears pealed for their new location and head there ASAP.
Cons: * You wont be able to satisfy constant burrito cravings, as these guys don't have a permanent location. * There aren't many options on the Burger Theory menu, you can choose from a bean burrito with sour cream, or one without.
