Taco's, Margarita's & Sunshine.

I think it was Oliver Twist who once sung "Food glorious food!". Very aptly put too (especially if you follow me on instagram!) but an afternoon of sales shopping and window browsing does call for some sustenance, especially when facing the horrors of Oxford Circus, in the form of too many people and not enough pavement, but luckily where we went (myself, my mother and my sister) to eat was on Market Place (i.e behind Topshop and far away from the madness!) so it was very quiet and super relaxing. We went to Tortilla, a Californian style Mexican food restaurant. I was lucky enough to have received two vouchers for some burritos or tacos, but since there were three of us, i treated my mother and sister and bought my taco and the drinks separately but considering the taco's were only £4.50 (a bargain i was not expecting!) I splashed out on some cheeky frozen Margarita's for my mother and I, and boy were they good!
Tortilla itself is not so much a 'traditional' restaurant, and if i were to compare it to any other place on the high street it would be a sort of high end subway in the sense that the food is prepared very quickly in front of you. You choose your fillings, additions etc and pay all in less than 10 minutes, so it's great if you're in a hurry but want good quality, wholesome food. I ended up getting the Pork Carnitas Taco with a lot of guacamole, salsa and cheese. It was absolutely delicious, my mum and sister got the Chicken burrito with varying additions but we all sat in silence for a good few minutes to wolf down our food. All in all? A pretty good and affordable place to grab a quick bite if you like mexican style food and you're in the Oxford Circus/ Bond Street / Tottenham Court Road area. The food is great, as is the decor and the staff were very friendly!
I think i'll be writing up more posts about hidden gems in London, be they restaurant, or vintage clothes shops, so I hope you enjoyed reading this! Oh and I have a recipe coming up this week, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

  2. I LOVE Tortilla. I've been to the one in Wimbledon as well and they're really some of the best burritos I've had so far in London. And really well priced! xx

  8. Yes, it was Oliver Twist! My granddaddy used to sing a version of that song for me that went "Food, glorious food. Oroma is hungry" <3
