Expect to Pay: £5-6 for a massive burrito (erm, we mean “burro”)
Rating: 9.5 out of 10
A few weeks back we went burrito taste-testing for our new VERSUS series and, let down by our findings, felt as if we’d betrayed one of London’s most wondrous lunch providers: Mexican grill/street food vendors, Daddy Donkey. Odds are we’ll go astray again if ever we hear of more promising Mexican food in London. But, rest assured, we’ll always return to our beloved Double D.
We’ve sampled most of DD’s “burros” (apparently their main product is too grande for the wimpy title of “burrito”) and love ‘em all (okay, the steak, veggie and chili con carne are our faves). Everything else looks good on the menu (fajitas, quesadillas, tortilla chips with salsa) but we’ve yet to get past the burros. Quite simply, we adore them.
