Chilango – Various Locations

More like bae-rrito, amirite? 🌯 {ad}⁣⁣
I can’t wait for you all to wrap your chops around this absolute bundle of joy 🤤 Long gone are the days of roasted peppers as the only option as a burrito filling, @chilango_uk has officially launched a vegan burrito featuring the vegan “chicken” and OHHH LAWWWWD, it’s good. ⁣⁣
Here’s what we thought: ⁣⁣
🌱⁣⁣⁣⁣THIS Isn’t a Chicken Burrito w/ plant-based chicken pieces, lightly spiced with piquin, paprika & cumin, chargrilled & glazed with BBQ maple salsa and a squeeze of lime. Served w/ coriander lime rice, black beans, Pico de Gallo salsa – all inside a soft flour tortilla⁣⁣
💰£8.95 (Guac is £1.50 extra)⁣ ⁣
✏️ OK, first things first, the”chicken” is marinated so well. It’s sweet and has a very mild heat and a slightly smokey BBQ flavour. It’s absolutely delicious. The texture is mind-blowing. I’d had the nuggets before but wasn’t sure if, without the breaded coating, it would be as realistic. It is, and for once, vegan chicken made from soy doesn’t have that soy aftertaste. Hoorah! The “chicken” soaks up all of the flavours from the marinade which I find vegan mock meats don’t always achieve so hats off to Chilango! I really think is a game-changing product and this burrito is easily one of the better vegan ones I’ve had. There was a point when I thought that the chicken did become a little too sweet but tbf this was after devouring an entire pot of it on its own as well as some of the nachos and a burrito so that may be unfair reviewing 😂 FYI, it’s made from non-GMO soy and also pea protein. ⁣⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ ⁣Yes⁣⁣
You can also add the”chicken” to a huge pile of nachos or to a big ol’ rice salad box for £8.95. Also, they’re working on perfecting vegan add-ons. Watch this space 👀
